School Lunch Hero Day

Posted by cahnrs.webteam | May 15, 2015

Food $ense joined our school nutrition partners in celebrating School Lunch Hero Day on May 1st.  School Lunch Hero Day was created to recognize that school nutrition professionals make a difference in the lives of every student that comes through their line.  School nutrition professionals have a lot on their plate, making sure our kids get a healthy meal on theirs!  With duties that often include early mornings, navigating school nutrition standards and student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, our school nutrition employees are definitely heroes!

F$ staff visited each of our partner schools to personally thank the nutrition services staff for their daily efforts in providing nutritious meals to our students.  Did your school do anything fun for School Lunch Hero Day?  We’d love to hear about it!  Please contact Anna Kitchin, Extension Coordinator, if you’d like to share your School Lunch Hero story.

Check out for more fun ideas of how to celebrate your school lunch heroes all year round.
