Celebrating National School Lunch Week
At Linn-Mar, a group of nearly 90 people, including substitutes, work tirelessly to provide an average of almost five thousand lunches and over 550 breakfasts to Linn-Mar students in thirteen buildings across the district each school day!
Several kitchens throughout the district are celebrating with dress-up days and other fun activities.
Today’s school lunches meet strict nutrition standards, including limits on calories, sodium, and unhealthy fats.
