National School Lunch Week

To recognize the National School Lunch Program, serving nearly 30 million children each day, Jeff Davis County Schools will celebrate National School Lunch Week from October 10-14, 2022. The fun and creative campaign theme, “Peace, Love & School Lunch,” highlights the importance of a healthy school lunch to a student’s success both in and out of the classroom.
Research shows children are getting their healthiest meals at school. National School Lunch Week will highlight the nutritious foods available daily at Jeff Davis County Schools. “School lunches offer students fruits and vegetables, whole grains and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium,” said Alisa Jones, School Nutrition Director. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the wonderful benefits of our lunch program.”
The federally funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) has been fueling students for success for 75 years. The nonprofit School Nutrition Association and Kellogg’s make the “Peace, Love & School Lunch” campaign possible. Parents and students can follow the fun on social media using the hashtags #NSLW22, #PeaceLoveSchoolLunch and #SchoolLunch.
NSLW Activities for our students at Jeff Davis County Schools: JDSNP Managers have planned a fun packed week to celebrate National School Lunch Week. Jeff Davis Primary will have “Lunch on the Lawn” on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. NSLW activity kits, prizes and so much more will take place during the week at primary cafeteria.
