Created in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy, NSLW is a weeklong celebration filled with events and activities designed to promote the benefits of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child's life, and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. The NSLP was signed into law in 1946 (Richard B. Russell Act) and is the largest of the federal child nutrition programs. 30 million students are served healthy lunches every school day—that's 5 billion meals annually! School nutrition programs play a critical role in ensuring all students, regardless of income level, receive nutritious lunches which follow strict federal nutrition standards.
