We're Wild About National School Lunch Week
Monday, October 11, 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. Read our recent article on Mrs. Unruh.
We encourage parents to help their children make menu selections. Menus are available on our district's Nutrition and Wellness page. Parents can print the menu and hang it on the refrigerator for easy reviewing access, or they can view interactive online menus. 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.
