This week is "School Nutrition Employee" week. School nutrition employees must balance many roles and follow a number of federal, state and local regulations to ensure that every school lunch offers students a well-balanced meal.
School employees in LCSD #1 have delivered over 1.2 million of those meals this year alone.
Across the state nearly 21- million meals are served each year. That's why school nutrition employees are being recognized this week.
They play a pivotal role in showing kids the healthy choices that are possible which will hopefully carry over to when they're adults.
