Calvert County Public Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Calvert County Public Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week

“WILD About School Lunch” Campaign highlights #NSLW21

 

To recognize the National School Lunch Program, serving nearly 30 million children each day, Calvert County Public Schools will celebrate National School Lunch Week from October 11-15, 2021.  We are hoping to highlight the importance of healthy school lunch to a student’s success both in and out of the classroom.

The federally funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) has been fueling students for success for 75 years.  Recent research shows children are getting their healthiest meals at school.  Our lunches offer students fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories, and sodium.  Thanks to pandemic waivers, school meals are free for all students this school year, so it’s a great time to give school lunch a try!  

We appreciate having the opportunity to serve the students of Calvert County Public Schools and thank you for being so understanding as we continue to navigate through the significant supply chain and staffing challenges this year.  As a thank you for participating in the school meal program, elementary school students will receive small prizes with lunch during this special week. 

Parents and students can follow the fun using the hashtags #NSLW21, WILDSchoolLunch, and #SchoolLunch. For more information on National School Lunch Week, visit https://schoolnutrition.org/nslw/.
