National School Lunch Week at Americus-Sumter High School

Americus-Sumter High School celebrated ‘National School Lunch Week’ from Oct. 15-18. To honor their effort and dedication, ASHS’s nutrition workers gathered in the cafeteria to receive t-shirts and pose for a photo. National School Lunch Week was created in 1962, by President John F. Kennedy to celebrate the benefits of our country’s national school lunch program, the largest federal child nutrition program in history. This year’s theme is ‘School Lunch: Lots 2 Love,’ which was designed to help students and school nutrition professionals connect and share what they love about school lunch with parents, school officials, the media, and the general public.
