Nebo Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week

“Lots 2 Love”  

Springville, UT – September 12, 2018 – To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Brookside school will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 8-12, 2018. The theme, “Lots 2 Love,” encourages students and school nutrition professionals across the country to share what they love most about school lunch programs.

National School Lunch Week will emphasize the healthy foods that are offered daily at Nebo schools.

“School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and less fat and sodium,” said [Director name, title]. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the benefits of our lunch program, and the appealing choices we offer."

The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to students every day. The program, which has been serving the nation’s children for more than 70 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards like offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole grain-rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium.

The “Lots 2 Love” campaign is made possible by the nonprofit School Nutrition Association. Parents and students can follow the fun using the hashtags #NSLW18, #SchoolLunch, and #Lots2Love. For more information on National School Lunch Week, visit https://schoolnutrition.org/nslw/

Please feel free to download this artwork so your student can participate in the art contest during the National School Lunch Week October 8th - 12th. Also, some parents pack love notes into their kids' bagged lunches. If your student eat's school lunch, feel free to send in a note to your student and we will deliver it to them that week.
