Thank you, everyone, for making School Lunch Hero Day such a spectacular success! In just about every state, kids celebrated their lunch staff and feted them with flowers, balloons and cards. Even governors, senators and the USDA got involved! A special thank you to the AASL, IRA, NEA, The Book It program and Family Fun magazine for all of the shout-outs. And a huge thank you to The School Nutrition Association and Random House Children's Books for being such great partners in the day, and to First Book for the book distribution to PG County Elementary in Maryland!
The Washington Post wrote a great wrap-up of SLHD festivities. Read all about it here!
