To recognize the National School Lunch Program, serving nearly 30 million children each day, schools nationwide will celebrate National School Lunch Week from October 11-15, 2021. The theme, “WILD About School Lunch” highlights the importance of a healthy school lunch to a student’s success both in and out of the classroom. . . .Our self-contained Simple Choice Meals, part of our extensive Meal Breaks line,  are perfect for staffing challenges and help speed up lines.

Schools across the nation are finding innovative ways to reach more students in their respective communities. . . .Instead of having drive-up lines at the schools, William Floyd School District and its food service partner, Aramark, relied on school transportation to deliver meals directly to the students’ families. Using 42 school buses running their regular routes, the school was able to deliver boxes, making it convenient for the families.

We were pleased that there was so much interest in our Afterschool Meals CACFP (Children and Adult Care Food Programs) Webinar held last week. Food service directors from across the country tuned in to hear tips on how to implement a successful Afterschool Meal program. I especially want to thank our featured speakers: Alexandra Molina, M.S., Director, McAllen ISD in Texas, and Sandra Kemp, Executive Director of Food and Nutrition at Albuquerque Public Schools in New Mexico.
