National School Lunch Week is October 10-14, 2011

Monday, October 3, 2011, 5:32 pm

Let's Grow Healthy is the theme for National School Lunch Week.  The theme fits well with National Farm to School Month and provides the opportunity for schools to try something new and promote locally sourced foods.  Choose to use a harvest-of-the-month menu, highlight foods from the school garden or invite a local farmer to provide an educational presentation.  There's a farm to school model or activity that can fit the needs of any school or district.
