Charleston CUSD1  to Honor the School Lunch Heroes Serving Healthy Meals

Celebrating School Lunch Hero Day on May 1, 2020


Between preparing healthy food, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, Charleston CUSD1 nutrition professionals have a lot on their plate. To celebrate their hard work and commitment, Charleston CUSD1 schools will celebrate School Lunch Hero Day on May 1. This day, celebrated annually since 2013, was designated by The School Nutrition Association and Jarrett Krosoczka, author of the “Lunch Lady” graphic novel series.  School Lunch Hero Day provides an opportunity for parents, students, school staff and communities to thank those who provide healthy meals to nearly 30 million of America’s students each school day.

The importance and nutritional value of school meals are well documented. For many children, school lunch is the most important and nutrient-rich meal of their day.  Thank you to our Aramark staff members who serve our students, staff, and community members.
