What is World School Milk Day?
Newton-Conover City Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week
"Lots 2 Love"
To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Newton-Conover City Schools will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 15-19, 2018.
The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) was signed into law in 1946 (Richard B. Russell Act), and is the largest of the federal child nutrition programs.
The week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life, and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.
School nutrition programs play a critical role in ensuring all students, regardless of income level, receive nutritious lunches which follow strict federal nutrition standards. Every school lunch features servings of fruits and vegetables, whole-grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy.
