Image promotes the purchase of Student Accident InsuranceVoluntary Membership in a group accident insurance program is made available to students each school year. Participation in the plan is voluntary and made available through school publications annually and parents are urged to purchase it for their children.

“Recipes for Success” during #NSLW17

Chefs hat with the words School Lunch: Recipes for SuccessTo recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Cumberland County schools will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 9-13, 2017. The theme, “Recipes for Success” is an opportunity to promote healthy school meals.

National School Lunch Week will emphasize the healthy foods that are offered daily at Cumberland County schools.

“School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and less fat and sodium,” said Beth Maynard, Executive Director of Child Nutrition Services.  “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the benefits of our lunch program and the appealing choices we offer.”

The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to students every day. The program, which has been serving the nation’s children for over 60 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards like offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole grain-rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium.

The “Recipes for Success” campaign is made possible by the nonprofit School Nutrition Association.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
