7th Annual School Lunch Hero Day to be celebrated on May 3

Students and school faculty will soon have the opportunity to show their appreciation to cafeteria staff during School Lunch Hero Day.

On May 3, Nutrition Services will celebrate School Lunch Hero Day, a nationwide celebration that honors school nutrition professionals for the valuable work they do each day. The observance will allow students and school staff to celebrate their campus’ cafeteria team.

Campuses are encouraged to show their appreciation to their cafeteria staff by creating thank you cards, banners, arrange musical performances, and more. Celebrate the day by posting photos and videos on Twitter and tag @HISDNutri using the hashtags #SchoolLunchHeroDay and #WeNourish.

School Lunch Hero Day is based on author Jarrett Krosoczka’s Lunch Lady, a graphic novel series featuring a crime-fighting Lunch Lady whose mission is to serve up justice while serving up lunch. Through this graphic novel, students are encouraged to read, learn the significance of giving thanks, and showing gratitude.
