Between preparing healthy food, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile,SMMUSD nutrition professionals have a lot on their plate. To celebrate their hard work and commitment, our schools will celebrate School Lunch Hero Day on Friday, May 3. This day, celebrated annually since 2013, was designated by The School Nutrition Association and Jarrett Krosoczka, author of the “Lunch Lady” graphic novel series. School Lunch Hero Day provides an opportunity for parents, students, school staff and communities to thank those who provide healthy meals to 30 million of America’s students each school day.
All across the school district, school nutrition professionals will be honored with thanks, cards, and recognition from students, school staff, parents, and the community. We will be sending home thank you cards; please encourage your kids to fill them out for Mr Henry Nolen and the kitchen staff. We will have additional thank you cards at the front desk should you want extras!
Thanks for recognizing all the work our staff does for our kids and our school!
