School Lunch Hero Day
When we say school nutrition professionals are heroes, we mean it! That’s why we celebrate them every spring with the annual School Lunch Hero Day. Join schools across the country who are recognizing the difference these team members make for every child who comes through their cafeteria.
School Lunch Hero Day will be celebrated on May 5, 2023.
Learn Where It All Started
In 2013, SNA partnered with author Jarrett J. Krosoczka, of the “Lunch Lady” book series, to remind everyone that school nutrition employees are superheroes that deserve some recognition. Check out Jarrett Krosoczka’s Ted Talk about School Lunch Hero Day!
