The Greensboro Public Schools is celebrating School Lunch Week this week with special meals, treats and invitations to parents and friends to come dine at their favorite school cafeteria.
``School Lunch: Shape Your Future,' is the theme of the special week, said Nancy Kennon, executive director for administration and head of the city schools child nutrition division. ``And it's an apt theme, since children literally help 'shape their future' physically by eating nutritious, healthy well-balanced meals such as those we prepare daily at their schools,' she said.Parents and guests are invited to eat lunch with students today and Friday, Kennon said. Price per lunch is $2.25 for visitors.
Kennon noted that October is a special month in many ways in school cafeterias. It's National Apple Month, with contests and prizes in the offing, planned by Child Nutrition. Oct. 30 will feature ``Halloween Sack Lunch' with surprises for the children in all city school cafeterias.
