DID YOU KNOW?
The National School Lunch Week (NSLW) was created in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy. It’s a week long national observance of events and activities designed to promote the benefits of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life, and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.
The NSLP was signed into law in 1946 (Richard B. Russell Act) and is the largest of the federal child nutrition programs. Nearly 30 million students are served healthy lunches every school day—that’s 5 billion annually!
School nutrition programs play a critical role in ensuring all students,regardless of income level, receive nutritious lunches which follow strict federal nutrition standards. School lunches include servings of fruits and vegetables, whole-grains, lean protein and low-fat dairy.
Napoleon Community Schools Food Service Department works hard everyday to provide school lunches that offer our students fruits and vegetables, whole grains and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium. National School Lunch Week helps us remind parents and students about the benefits of our lunch program and the appealing variety of choices available to students. PLUS give us the opportunity to have a some fun with our Pirates while teaching them the values of good nutrition.
Join in on the fun October 14th to 18th while we find our “What’s on your playlist?”
