Get Ready for SLHD!


Get ready to celebrate your team on Friday, May 6, for the 10th anniversary of School Lunch Hero Day! For decades, school nutrition professionals have faced tough regulations, aging facilities, budget and time constraints, and inaccurate pop culture stereotypes. Then, the pandemic upped the ante, bringing even greater challenges, threats and barriers to face and overcome. SLHD is a great opportunity for the community to say thank you for those working on the frontlines in our schools.

Don’t let time get away from you—start organizing your SLHD plans now and lead school-wide efforts to show your team just how much their hard work and unflagging spirit are valued. Need help trying to figure out how you can celebrate? Don’t worry, SNA has tools on hand to assist you in recognizing the amazing job our #lunchheroes do every day. Visit the SLHD Shop for aprons, T-shirts, cups and more.

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!
