About National School Lunch WeekPresident John F. Kennedy
created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962.
During this annual weeklong celebration, SNA members and students around the country celebrate in their cafeterias with decorations, special menus, events, and more. The 2017 NSLW theme is “School Lunch: Recipes for Success”, and it’s all about showing off the secrets to your school lunch success in your schools and districts—fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and of course, our students. The National School Lunch Program serves more than 30 million children every school day—that’s something to smile about! Capitalize on NSLW with our tools and resources, including social media tips to help you promote your program to parents and students!
