National School Lunch Week 2014

TDA is making plans and developing resources for National School Lunch Week (NSLW) 2014. The annual celebration is scheduled for October 13-17 and this year’s theme, “Score Big with a Healthy Texas Lunch,” shows students that winning in all aspects of life starts with a nutritious mid-day meal that includes Texas products. 

Local Products Challenge

Each year, TDA challenges schools to use more Texas products in meals served during NSLW, with the Local Products Challenge and recognized participants that complete the challenge. Download this flier for full details about the Local Products Challenge.
