Goff Middle School offered students a special Vegan bean and corn salad for everyone to taste as well as strawberry milk. Information about the importance of school lunch has also been shared on the morning announcements and on Friday, every lunch will be served with a special pudding cup.

At Bell Top, musical stickers were put on fruit cups, school lunch crossword puzzles were given out, and two songs about menu items played during lunch service.

National School Lunch week was created by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 to promote how crucial it is to supply students with healthy and delicious school lunches. These meals not only increase attention span and higher learning, but also teach healthy eating habits that students can take with them for the rest of their lives.
