National School Lunch Week is Coming Your Way!

By Brehm, Deb

September 24, 2021

It is that time again that we celebrate National School Lunch Week!  Did you know that every year, the Nation celebrates National School Lunch Week in October as declared by an act of Congress?  It was started in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy to help promote the importance of a healthy lunch for children at school.  He wanted families in America to understand how important a healthy lunch is for students to learn and grow.


Nationwide, schools across America will be promoting and celebrating School Lunch Week 2021, from October 11th – 15th.  The animal-based theme picked for this year is called WILD About School Lunch.  Our district will promote fun and clever menu items, while buildings involve students in activities to promote the current theme. 


USD #343 is excited to promote the celebration of National School Lunch Week in the hopes that we will increase student participation.  It is important to all of us that every student eats a healthy breakfast and lunch!  As a parent, you can encourage your child to eat breakfast and lunch at school.  


Don’t forget…   National School Breakfast Week for 2021 will be celebrated from March 8th thru 12th with the theme of Score Big with School Breakfast!
