This is a partnered post with the School Nutrition Association.
It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the school year. This week we are celebrating staff appreciation days so it’s only fitting that May 6, 2016 is School Lunch Hero Day. This day is meant to celebrate all of the hard working school nutrition professionals who serve local schools and communities all across this country.School lunch heroes can be found in every community but too often, their dedication to the children they serve goes unrecognized. The day will inspire creativity, encourage school unity and teach a sense of gratitude. I know our school lunch hero makes sure all of our kids have a deliciously fresh meal to help fuel them through their day.
Often I hear kids talk about how much they enjoy the salad bar and the options they get pick from, I know this is always a favorite for our girls. I know that takes a lot of preparation and it’s nice to know our kids are getting that care and it really does make them feel like they’re at home.
To celebrate our school lunch hero I made this printable lunch lady poem that just shares a few simple words on why we are so thankful for our school lunch hero.
I want to encourage my fellow parents and even teachers out there to use free downloads and resources to celebrate School Lunch Hero Day. I just love these fun activities and ideas to get the fun started.
School Lunch Hero Day is just a day to celebrate the wonderful people who work in our schools so I encourage you to join in and say thanks to those in our community who often offer a helping hand.
