"School Lunch Playlist" Highlights #NSLW19
To recognize the National School Lunch Program, serving 30 million children each day, Clarkston Community Schools is celebrating National School Lunch Week from October 14-18, 2019. The theme, "School Lunch: What's on Your Playlist," spotlights how today's school cafeterias are serving up healthy menu items that kids want to eat, with increased choice and customization.
National School Lunch Week will highlight the nutritious foods available daily in our district's schools. School lunches offer students fruits and vegetables, whole grains and milk, and meet federal nutrition standards limiting fat, calories and sodium. National School Lunch Week helps Clarkston Community Schools educate parents and students about all the benefits of our lunch program and the appealing variety of choices in the cafeteria.
The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) has been fueling students for success for more than 70 years. Students can enjoy the convenience of a healthy school lunch for just $2.90 elementary, and $3.25-$3.50 for middle, junior high and high school. Some students may qualify for free or reduced price meals. Contact Dining Services Director Matt Severson at (248) 623-8002 or visit the Food & Nutrition Department page on our website.The "School Lunch Playlist" campaign is made possible by the nonprofit School Nutrition Association. Parents and students can follow the fun using the hashtags #NSLW19, #SchoolLunchPlaylist and #SchoolLunch. For more information on National School Lunch Week, visit https://schoolnutrition.org/nslw/.
