A Texas Take on National School Lunch Week 2016

Last year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s theme for National School Lunch Week was “Vote for a Winning Lunch!” Texas children had the opportunity to vote for their favorite school lunch candidate using a special ballot just for school meals in Texas during National School Lunch Week during October. When children have a voice in school nutrition, they are prepared to make the healthy choices that will govern their future success. Last election year, students declared victory for good nutrition during National School Lunch Week. 

NSLW Catalogue

TDA launched a catalogue to offer one-stop shopping to support successful 2016 National School Lunch Week celebrations. No coupons or special offers were required because everything in this exciting new catalogue was available at no cost!


Inside the catalogue were ballot boxes, ballots and “National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day” invitations. Schools ordered all the items to complement and strengthen the “Vote for a Winning Lunch” theme reflected in the cafeteria posters received from TDA. Schools were also able to access suggested menus, shopping lists, morning announcements, a menu calendar template, and more.
