FCS school nutrition staff strive to make lunchtime the favorite part of every student’s day. From their friendly greetings in the cafeteria and the love they dish out with every student’s meal, to how they encourage kids to eat more fruits and vegetables, our school nutrition professionals are truly heroes.
On Friday, May 5, visit your FCS café and show your appreciation for your school nutrition team as part of School Lunch Hero Day.
Between preparing healthy meals, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals have a lot on their plate.
Federal nutrition standards for school meals require cafeterias to offer a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, use whole grains and limit sodium, calories and saturated fat in each meal. School nutrition professionals have been mixing up the menu and getting students excited about trying the new, healthier choices in school lunch.
Be sure to visit your school café and thank your team for all their hard work!
