27J Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week
To recognize the National School Lunch Program, serving nearly 30 million children each day, 27J Schools will celebrate National School Lunch Week from October 12-15, 2021. The fun and creative campaign theme, “WILD About School Lunch” highlights the importance of a healthy school lunch to a student’s success both in and out of the classroom. Recent research shows children are getting their healthiest meals at school. National School Lunch Week will highlight the nutritious foods available daily at our district schools. “School lunches offer students fruits and vegetables, whole grains and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium,” said Tony Jorstad, 27J Schools Nutrition Services Director. “Thanks to pandemic waivers, school meals are free for all students this school year, so it’s a great time to give school lunch a try. National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the wonderful benefits of our lunch program.” Join us for lunch October 12th-15th!
