National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day


As part of NSLW, SNA has teamed up with KIWI Magazine for National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day. On Wednesday October 17 (or a day of your choosing) we hope you will host a "National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day" and spread the word to parents that healthy and tasty options are being served in your cafeteria every day.

Below is a checklist to help you plan your event, and you also check out KIWI's website to see their resources for both schools and parents.

More tips are also available in the "What's Cooking?" Toolkit.

Parents aren’t the only special guests you can invite to enjoy lunch in your cafeteria! Consider inviting a local congressional representative to eat lunch with the students. It’s a great way to build relationships with policymakers, get attention from the media, and bring up your questions and concerns. Check out the Show Congress What’s Cooking tip sheet for ideas and instructions.
