National School Lunch Week

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves nearly 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962 to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.

During this annual weeklong celebration, SNA members and students around the country will celebrate in their cafeterias, schools and districts with special menus, events, student activities and more.

The 2021 NSLW theme WILD About School Lunch invites creative and fun new menu items while appealing to the universal popularity of animals and nature to appeal to students in all grade levels.
