The National School Lunch Week (NSLW) 2020 materials highlight Texas students’ creativity; this year’s artwork was inspired by the winning entries in the most recent You Art What You Eat student art contest. To enter, Texas students illustrated their interpretations of a nutritious meal and the space-exploration theme Blast Off with a Healthy School Lunch.
The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) has created materials that enable you and your staff to easily promote participation in National School Lunch Week (NSLW), October 12-16, and Farm to School Month throughout October — two events many of you celebrated in more tranquil years. TDA understands these times are difficult and decisions on critical issues such as meal-service models and safety for students will need to be made. We encourage you to participate this year to help brighten your meal service this fall.
In order to assist you with planning, there are many printed promotional materials available via the order form link to the right. CNDs should have received an email stating that TDA will NOT automatically be sending Cafeteria Posters this year. Cafeteria Posters are still available via the order form. The order form will be available until Friday, August 14, 2020.
If you miss the deadline for ordering printed materials all are available in a digital format below, as well as other resources to help boost student participation.
