School Nutrition Association of Kansas

Kansas School Lunch Week


Celebrate Kansas School Lunch Week

January 22-26, 2018

SNA-KS celebrates Kansas School Lunch Week each year with this reoccurring theme now. Promoting Kansas and local foods is a sustainable plan for many years. SNA-KS and KSDE support a joint effort to promote Agriculture products from Kansas.

Visit, Farm to School for menu suggestions along with supporting recipes tested in  schools by the Kansas State Department of Education, Child Nutrition and Wellness. Teachers can find “Ag in the Classroom Nutrition Education Lesson Plans” to support the cafeteria celebrations during Kansas School Lunch Week.

Kansas has a rich agricultural history and a promising future, and school nutrition programs are encouraged to celebrate this heritage each January during Kansas School Lunch Week!
