Now Playing: School Lunch!

Dallas ISD schools will celebrate National School Lunch Week—“Now Playing: School Lunch!”—through from Oct. 16 with special treats and a video contest to spotlight the importance of a healthy school lunch.

“A healthy lunch is a great way to ensure students get the best education they can,” said Michael Rosenberger, Executive Director of Dallas ISD’s Food & Child Nutrition Services. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the healthy, great tasting, and appealing lunch choices we offer.” Planned activities for the week include: 

School lunch week video Contest: The video contest engages students K-12 in learning about the importance of eating a healthy and delicious school lunch. The contest challenges students to use their imagination to illustrate their own “School Lunch video” which coincides with this year’s NSLW theme of “Now Playing: School Lunch”. The winning video will be featured on FCNS social media platforms.  All student(s) must participate with an educator.  We will select a winner per each school level.  Amongst the prizes are movie tickets, Barnes and Nobles Gift cards, electronic tablets and more.  Details about the video contest will be forwarded to all principals, school art and media teachers.
