To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Milford schools will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 12 through 16, 2015. The theme, “School Lunch Snapshot” is all about sharing the best images of today’s school lunches.

National School Lunch Week will emphasize the healthy foods that are offered daily at Milford schools. On October 14th, Senator Gary Simpson has been invited to see the school lunch operation at the Mispillion Elementary School. Mayor Bryan Shupe and an Education Associate from the Department of Education’s Child Nutrition Program will also be on hand to observe and meet with student leaders at the elementary school.

“School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and less fat and sodium” said Joann Joseph, Mispillion Cafeteria Manager. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the benefits of our lunch program, and the appealing choices we offer”.

This year’s theme is “School Lunch Snapshot”, which encourages students to either take snapshots of themselves and their friends enjoying healthy meals or make drawings of healthy meals. The children are encouraged to hang the pictures in their school cafeteria or lobby as permitted.

The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to student’s every day. The program, which has been serving the nation’s children for over 60 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards like offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole-grain rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium.

The “School Lunch Snapshot” campaign is made possible by the nonprofit School Nutrition Association. Parents and students can follow the fun via the hashtag #NSLW. For more information about schools meals, parents can visit the Milford School District website at www.msd.k12.de.us or www.schoolnutrition.org/SchoolMeals.
