On Friday, May 3rd, to kick off School Nutrition Employee Week, SNA joined Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author and illustrator of the popular LUNCH LADY graphic novel series, and Random House Children’s Books to host School Lunch Superhero Day.

Across the country, schools recognized the passionate professionals who feed 31 million students every day. SNA followed the fun online, posting photos and reports from schools nationwide at; and on Twitter @schoollunch.

Krosoczka celebrated the day at his alma mater, Gates Lane Elementary School in Worcester, Massachusetts, leading students and faculty in honoring the school nutrition staff. SNA was there to capture the moment and produce these inspiring videos:
