Elementary Activity Sheets - Fun, age appropriate puzzles and games engage students in learning about nutrition and agriculture. Materials feature the winning artwork from the You Art What You Eat contest’s elementary school division. Available in Spanish.
Facebook Cover Photos - To complement other social media outreach efforts, change your school’s Facebook cover photo to help market SBW all month long! Just upload the corresponding grade level cover photo and start telling all the school’s Facebook friends about SBW. This is another great way to inform parents of the upcoming celebration. Available in Spanish.
Morning Announcements - Daily SBW announcements combine learning about good nutrition with building excitement for the event. Morning announcements can be read over the intercom or displayed on school TVs. Students of all ages can participate in this activity and TDA encourages schools to involve students. TDA has tailored these announcements for an intermediate reading level (grades 4 – 8) so younger students should be able to read them. Quick tip: a good way to encourage students to participate is to host a contest where the winners get to read the morning announcements during SBW. Available in Spanish.
Parent Information Flyer with Suggested Theme Days - The flyer can be distributed via email or printed and sent home with students. The flyer gives parents a chance to support your SBW efforts and encourage their children to participate. The theme days help generate buzz around the celebration, especially for middle and high school students. Schools can document all the fun outfits for TDA’s success story features! Available in Spanish.

An alternative to printing the flyer is placing a link in an electronic school newsletter. You can also promote theme days using your school’s different communication platforms by simply copying and pasting the ad to your school’s website or asking teachers and staff to include this advertisement in all their communications to parents.
Recipe Book - This recipe book provides ingredients, step by step instructions, portions and much more so cafeteria staff can replicate the SBW suggested menu items for their students. Recipes can be customized to fit your service style from traditional on-the-line to grab-and-go!
Site/Web Banner - To publicize SBW celebrations for the entire community, add this site button to your school’s home page. Teachers can add the button to the bottom of their signature lines so it is visible with outgoing emails. Available in Spanish.
Site/Web Button - To publicize SBW celebrations for the entire community, add this site button to your school’s home page. The button can also be added to school newsletters to capture the attention of parents. Available in Spanish.
Social Media Ads - TDA’s high-quality social media ads are suitable for all the outlets your district supports including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The ads focus on building curiosity for the upcoming campaign and announcing that the week has arrived. Consider linking your online post to the TDA suggested hashtag #TXSBW. Available in Spanish.
Social Media Assistance Packet - This Social Media Assistance Packet provides social media posts (images and copy) you can use to increase meal participation at your school.
Suggested Menu - The suggested menu features different different recipes geared towards the current SBW theme. Download the recipe book above this resource for the recipes featured in this menu. Share your recipes by linking your online pictures to TDA’s hashtag #TXSBW#NSBW23
