School Lunch Hero Day: There Are Heroes Among Us


There are many moving pieces involved in making school lunch “happen” each day for millions of students. It takes a real team! Make time to recognize all their efforts on School Lunch Hero Day (SLHD), Friday, May 6, 2016! This celebratory occasion occurs during School Nutrition Employee Week (May 2-6, 2016), and it is the perfect opportunity to showcase the school nutrition professionals who make a difference in the cafeteria.

You’ll find celebration tools and inspiring ideas to show your gratitude on SNA’s website at, as well as exclusive SLHD merchandise from SNA’s Emporium. Consider extending your appreciation by giving employees the gift of SNA membership—a reward that will pay off all year long!

Once again, SNA has partnered with Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author of the “Lunch Lady” book series, and Random House. Stay tuned to SNA’s website for details about a special webinar with Krosoczka. Additionally, you could win “Lunch Lady” books for your school when you help recruit new members May 1-31. Visit to learn more.
