During National School Lunch Week, many schools feature special menu items, hold promotional activities for the students and provide giveaways which promote nutrition to those participating in the program. This year, one of the most exciting events was the opportunity to win a brand new Phat Cycles beach cruiser from the Richardson Bike Company.
All secondary scholars who participated in National School Lunch Week had the opportunity to win simply by eating lunch in the cafeteria during the week of October 21-25. Those who ate school lunch received a raffle ticket which they had to complete and return to the raffle box in their schools cafe. Secondary scholars were able to enter their names up to five times during the week. Winners were announced during their lunch hour across the network.
Between new meal patterns, chef-inspired recipes and freshly prepared meals, there have been lots of great developments in Uplift cafeterias. The Child Nutrition Program is constantly working to ensure that our scholars are eating healthy school lunches and encouraging active lifestyles. Lunch menus are sent home with scholars once a month and can also be accessed online by visiting school websites. General information about menus, setting up an online meal account, obtaining information on free and reduced price meals, as well as calorie and carbohydrate information can be found on the Child Nutrition Program section of the Uplift website.
