A Rockin' Texas National School Lunch Week 2017

This year, the Texas Department of Agriculture's theme for National School Lunch Week (NSLW) is "Rock the Day with a Healthy School Lunch!" TDA's NSLW campaign goal is always to challenge students and staff to try new foods offered in the cafeteria. TDA, with help from Texas schools, wants to raise student awareness about the importance of eating a healthy school lunch during NSLW and every day. So encourage your students to join their bandmates and enjoy a healthy school lunch so they can have the energy and charisma to put on a great show for the rest of the school year!

NSLW Catalog

Once again TDA is offering the NSLW Catalog to encourage one-stop shopping to support successful 2017 National School Lunch Week celebrations. No coupons or special offers are required because everything in this rock star catalog is available at no cost!

Inside the catalog you will find participation charts, selfie backdrops, floor decals and "National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day" invitation. Schools can order the items listed above to complement and strengthen the "Rock the Day with a Healthy School Lunch" theme reflected in the cafeteria posters from TDA. Schools can also access suggested menus, shopping lists, morning announcements, a menu calendar template, and more!
