Let's Celebrate Our #NHSchoolLunchHeroes

Show Your Appreciation April 27-May 1st

Friday May 1st is National School Lunch Hero Day, but this year we are striving to make it School Lunch Hero WEEK! With the COVID-19 pandemic our food service staff, as well as many others, have jumped to the rescue to provide students with delicious, nutritious, and thoughtful meals. 

This has been no easy task, and one that should be recognized and applauded for more than a day. Join us in showing gratitude and appreciation to our lunch heroes through a weeklong campaign, all while practicing social distancing.

During the week of April 27-May 1st, follow along and engage via social media as we share, and create, a state wide effort to show our lunch heroes how much they mean to us!
