WARSAW — To recognize the National School Lunch Program serving nearly 30 million children each day, Warsaw Community Schools is celebrating National School Lunch Week from Oct. 12 to 16.
The federally funded National School Lunch Program has been fueling students for success for more than 70 years. The theme “Now Playing: School Lunch!” puts the spotlight on the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life.
Warsaw Schools staff would like to thank all who work in the schools’ food services department for their ongoing commitment to children in this community. Through their dedication, WCS provided meals to hundreds of families during the COVID-19 school building shut down, over the summer break and now during eLearning days. Their willingness to go above and beyond is greatly appreciated.
National School Lunch Week will highlight the nutritious foods available daily at WCS.
“School lunches offer students fruits and vegetables, whole grains and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium,” said Marci Franks, director of food services. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the wonderful benefits of our lunch program.”
The “Now Playing School Lunch” campaign is made possible by the nonprofit School Nutrition Association. Parents and students can follow the fun using the hashtags #NSLW2020, #NowPlayingSchoolLunch and #SchoolLunch.
