National School Lunch Week (NSLW) will be celebrated in all schools within Provo City School District on October 14-18.

This annual event is a week where schools celebrate the school lunch program. One of the goals of National School Lunch Week is to show how school cafeterias are serving up favorable menu items while also increasing child choice and customization. The other goal is to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and demonstrate the impact it has on the child both inside and outside the classroom.

The actual event will only take place the first 3 days of the week since Fall Break begins the fourth day and school will not be in session.The theme this year is “School Lunch: What’s on Your Playlist?” The activities planned for this year are influenced by three musical genres which will be represented on a different day during the week; the 80’s, Disco and Country-Western. The cafeterias in each school will be decorated in each genre and will feature a fun menu, food art, photo booths, contests, prizes and giveaways during lunch.

More information will be coming to each school as the event gets closer.
