#RaiseYourHand for School Meals!
October 15 – October 19, 2018 is National School Lunch Week — a time to promote the positive benefits of the National School Lunch Program. During the 2016-2017 school year, the program provided more than 30 million children with a nutritious lunch on an average school day.
To contribute to National School Lunch Week’s celebration of school lunch, join FRAC’s #RaiseYourHand digital campaign! Get vocal on social and share why we all should be raising our hands for meals served during school hours. Check out resources from the School Nutrition Association (SNA) to learn about more ways to celebrate National School Lunch Week.
