Lorain City School’s school nutrition staff strives to make mealtime the favorite part of every student’s day. From their friendly greetings in the cafeteria and the love they serve with every student’s meal, to how they encourage kids to eat more fruits and vegetables, school nutrition professionals are true heroes. Since the beginning of the nation’s coronavirus health crisis, our Aramark nutrition staff have safely delivered more than 79,000 free meals to students, and continue to do so, by providing breakfast, lunch and super snacks seven days a week through its daily distribution and “Triple Bag Friday” initiative. 

School Lunch Hero Day provides an opportunity for parents, students, school staff and communities to thank those who provide healthy meals to nearly 30 million of America’s students each school day. This day, celebrated annually since 2013, was designated by The School Nutrition Association and Jarrett Krosoczka, author of the “Lunch Lady” graphic novel series.
