School Lunch Hero Day

May 3, 2024.


A national celebration that empowers students to harness the power of their creativity to express gratitude for all of the hard work being done in our school cafeterias!


Between preparing healthy meals for America’s students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals are true heroes.

School Lunch Hero Day is celebrated on the first Friday in May! This is a chance to showcase the difference school nutrition professionals make for every child who comes through the cafeteria. School Lunch Hero Day provides you with the perfect opportunity to recognize the hardworking professionals in your school cafeterias.
