On Friday, May 1, 2020, we celebrate School Lunch Hero Day! This is a special day of celebration to recognize school nutrition professionals and the difference they make every day!

Between preparing healthy meals for Texas students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals are true heroes.


School Lunch Hero Day provides the perfect opportunity to recognize the hardworking professionals in your school cafeterias.

TDA has fun downloadable resources to help you celebrate your school lunch heroes. Join us on Friday, May 1, 2020 by posting on social media to recognize your school lunch heroes!
