NSLW Toolkit
TDA mailed these colorful National School Lunch Week (NSLW) posters to each Child Nutrition Director, providing sufficient time for distribution to the cafeterias. As always, there are three posters to a set and they come in elementary and middle/high school series. These posters do not include NSLW dates and are designed to fit in the tri-a-rama three panel ceiling display system; schools may display them other ways if it works better for their students and/or cafeterias.
