The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves nearly 30 million children every school day. National School Lunch Week is a weeklong celebration of the federal National School Lunch Program, which provides low-income children with a nutritious meal each school day.
Celebration activities during NSLW can provide an opportunity to advocate for the child nutrition provisions in the Build Back Better Act, including those that support Healthy School Meals for All; raise awareness about the healthy lunches served at school; increase student participation, offer a platform to share successful implementation strategies; and attract media coverage.
