This Is School Lunch Week

This week is National School Lunch Week. This year’s theme is “Now Playing: School Lunch!”

District 56 students have been attending school in person all week since the start of this school year, while District 55 is now phasing in younger grades for five-day-a-week in class. But The District is celebrating National School Lunch Week. District 55 Director of Student Nutrition Services Wanda Knight said, “School lunches offer students fruits and vegetables, whole grains and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium.” She added, “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the wonderful benefits of our lunch program.”
