Lexington 3 Participates in National School Lunch Week

October 24, 2018

Batesburg-Leesville, SC -During the week of October 15th through 19th, Lexington County School District Three participated in National School Lunch Week. The celebration, which was sponsored by the School Nutrition Association, is aimed at helping schools highlight their cafeteria programs and show why they are a special, delicious and nutritious place for students to visit every single day.

 

President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week in 1962 and since then, school districts across the country have been using the event to celebrate and promote The National School Lunch Program. The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to students every day. The program, which has been serving the nation’s children for more than 70 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards like offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole grain-rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium. In Lexington Three, approximately 72% of the student population eats lunch and approximately 57% of the student population eats breakfast that is prepared by Food Services staff members.

 

Lexington Three’s cafeterias had special decorations during National School Lunch Week and students who consumed school meals also received prizes each day such as wristbands, pencils and erasers. Food Services staff members also wore t-shirts that were designed to promote the National School Lunch Week event.
