National School Lunch Week Campaign Highlights Healthy Changes in School Cafeterias

co_102013schoollunch1-large

Last week, in celebration of National School Lunch Week, our cafeterias countywide hosted the “School Lunch Across the USA” campaign to spotlight nutritious recipes, ingredients and the hard working staff that make the school cafeterias enjoyable for our students.

The schools are working to inform parents about healthy changes in school cafeterias under the new nutrition standards for school meals. These changes are being made while we are still offering the students their favorite menu items.

The Schools are getting parents in on the fun too. Many are participating in“National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day,” inviting parents to visit the cafeteria and celebrate what’s great about school lunch.

To raise awareness of the Program, the management at the new Bowling Green cafeteria hosted County Board member Jeff Sili,Virginia Senator McDougle and our Superintendent, Dr. Killough, for lunch on Wednesday. The event was covered by the national family magazine, Kiwi. On Friday, County Board member Floyd Thomas showed his support, dropping in on the cafeteria and having a great time interacting with the students.

The Food Service Office would like to thank everyone for their continued support of the School Nutrition Program in Caroline County.
