To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, get involved this National School Lunch Week from October 15-19, 2018. The theme, “Lots 2 Love,” encourages students and school nutrition professionals across the country to share what they love most about school lunch programs. The School Nutrition Association has a variety of useful resources on their website, including a toolkit, handouts, artwork, and materials to help you promote your lunch program.
As we settle into Fall, what I think of as our “Lots 2 Love” lunch item is our quintessential comfort food – Mac & Cheese. With the October chill in the air, who doesn’t love the warm, homemade taste of Mac & Cheese? Ours continues to win taste test, and it has lower sodium than our competitors’ versions. Consider putting it on your menu for lunch.
