Lunch ladies (and gentlemen) don't often get the respect they deserve, and now that school is closed, they're doing even more for our kids.

School Lunch Hero Day, celebrated on May 1st every year, "is a chance to showcase the difference school nutrition professionals make for every child who comes through the cafeteria. School Lunch Hero Day provides you with the perfect opportunity to recognize the hardworking professionals in your school cafeterias."
