A Texas Take on National School Lunch Week 2016

This year, the Texas Department of Agriculture’s theme for National School Lunch Week is “Vote for a Winning Lunch!” Texas children will have 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, October 10-14. When children have a voice in school nutrition, they are prepared to make the healthy choices that will govern their future success. This election year, students will declare victory for good nutrition during National School Lunch Week.
