Let’s Grow Healthy!
“School Lunch – Let’s Grow Healthy” will help students understand where food comes from while highlighting the overall benefit that school lunch helps kids grow strong and healthy. The NSLW 2011 theme provides the opportunity to try something new and promote locally sourced foods. From a harvest-of-the-month menu to a school garden to a meet-the-farmer educational presentation and much more, there’s a farm-to-school model or activity that can fit the needs of any school or district!
The campaign runs from August 2011 to October 2011, culminating in National School Lunch Week, October 10-14, 2011.
October 2011 is also the first annual National Farm to School Month which ties in well with the “School Lunch – Let’s Grow Healthy” theme.
As always SNA members ultimately determine the success of NSLW - so what are you waiting for? It's time to check out the resources below and get nurturing those celebration ideas!
