Get Ready for School Lunch Hero Day!


SLHD-2021-date-template-squareIf there was ever a year to recognize the heroic efforts of school nutrition professionals, 2021 is it! School Lunch Hero Day this year is Friday, May 7. Need help trying to figure out how you can celebrate in the time of COVID-19? Don’t worry, SNA has tools on hand to assist you in recognizing the amazing job our #lunchheroes do every day–and even more so as they remain on the front lines to feed students nationwide whether they are at home or in school!

This is the ninth year SNA has partnered with artist Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author of the “Lunch Lady” book series that started it all. We are excited to announce all new artwork from Jarrett this year featuring a new cast of lunch hero characters that you can share on social media! Download the artwork here and be sure to follow the guidelines.

We are also excited to launch the all-new School Lunch Hero Day Shop, featuring School Lunch Hero masks! Check out our new pens, t-shirts, posters, bookmarks and more. Order your items today to ensure your heroes receive their gifts in time.


You’ll also find lots of recognition ideas on the website, including thank-you cards. Plan to spread the word and get the rest of your school, district and community with the help of our customizable press release and proclamation.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
