We're Wild About National School Lunch Week

Friday , October 08 , 2021

This week, we’re celebrating National School Lunch Week (NSLW) Wild About School Lunches! Created by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, NSLW spotlights the everyday creativity of school cafeteria teams to create fun new menu items while appealing to students in all grade levels.

The Nutrition and Wellness Department serves 15,000-17,000 meals daily between breakfasts, lunches, and snacks.  And yes, some of our most popular meals include the Mini Waffles and Chicken Strips, Wild Mike’s Pizza (Cheese and Pepperoni), Nachos with Taco Meat, and of course, the classic Chicken Nuggets with Wheat Roll.

“PVSchools is offering free meals to all students for the 2021-22 school year. We’re grateful that we can provide free breakfast and lunch daily to all of our students. It’s one less thing that parents need to worry about this school year, and we’re hoping more students take advantage of the opportunity,” says Camille Unruh, director of Nutrition and Wellness.

We encourage parents to help their children make menu selections. Menus are available at www.pvschools.net/about/nutrition-and-wellness. Parents can print the menu and hang it on the refrigerator for easy reviewing access or view online menus through “My School Menus” at www.myschoolmenus.com/instance/486/district/469.  Parents just need to select which school their child attends for the online menu and pick either breakfast or lunch. Menus are available in English and Spanish.

PVSchools is always looking for more kitchen staff, so if you are interested in working with us, please call the Nutrition and Wellness office at 602-449-2274.
