NSLW 2023

A healthy lunch is more than just a meal. It fuels young minds and supports learning and growth. Every year during the second week of October, National School Lunch Week serves as a reminder that a well-balanced lunch is an essential part of every student's day. By showcasing the importance of a healthy lunch, we can encourage better eating habits while promoting overall wellness among students.

This year we’re celebrating National School Lunch Week from October 9th-13th. The School Nutrition Association’s (SNA) theme for this year is “Level Up” So how are you going to help your school level up this year? Below we’ve included some great resources from SNA to help you prepare for the week ahead.
