Chambers County Schools 2021 National School Lunch Week

Chambers County Schools 2021 National School Lunch Week

October 16, 2021 Off By Gator

Lunchrooms across the Chambers County School District celebrated National School Lunch week from October 11th-15th.  National School Lunch Week was founded in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has both inside and outside of the classroom.  Child Nutrition Program staff across Chambers County celebrated this week with special menus, decorations and more to serve their students.  The 2021 theme for National School Lunch Week was “Wild about School Lunch” which was designed to focus on the universal popularity of animals and nature to appeal to all students.  The main idea is to increase student participation and share the message that our schools are serving healthy and nutritious meals to students.  

District Superintendent, Casey Chambley, commended the CCSD’s Child Nutrition Director Donna Pike and the rest of her staff across Chambers County for their tireless work to ensure the children across the district are receiving healthy meals each day.  Lunchrooms across the system were energetically involved in promoting the mission throughout the past week.  Below are some photos from some of our schools that took National School Lunch Week to another level:
