On Friday, May 5, 2017, we will celebrate the 5th Annual School Lunch Hero Day! School Lunch Hero Day is a chance to showcase the difference school nutrition professionals make for every child who comes through the cafeteria.
Our Nutrition Services Department donated a set of Lunch Lady books by Jarrett J. Krosoczkato to each elementary school in the district. This book series portrays school nutrition employees acting as superheroes. Krosoczkato’s project, School Lunch Hero Day, reveals how cafeteria staff provide more than just food, and illustrates how powerful a heartfelt thank you can be.
The Child Nutrition Program provides nutritious, well-balanced meals under the Federal School Meal Program while operating a self-sustaining program. To protect the integrity of the program and the benefits that it provides to students, federal regulations prohibits competitive sales of food and beverage during the meal service times. This would include any food or beverage sold in schools from 6:00 a.m. through the end of the breakfast period, and from the beginning of the first scheduled lunch period through the end of the last scheduled lunch period. Food and beverage sold during non-competitive hours must abide by the nutritional standards as defined by the USDA.
