School Lunch Hero Day is May 7. DeSoto ISD and Chartwells celebrate its child nutrition team,  ensuring that the district’s nearly 8,000 students receive nutritious meals daily.

There is an adage that reads ‘A hero cape is just an apron turned backward.” If that is the case, then DeSoto ISD cafeterias are staffed with dedicated heroes.

Cafeteria workers are often required to work early morning hours engage in hours of daily meal preparation, planning, distribution, and logistics. They prepare healthy meals which adhere to strict nutrition standards while being mindful of student food allergies and offering exceptional customer service.

In DeSoto ISD, we honor the daily contributions of our child nutrition workers and thank them for their diligence to not only serve nutritious meals but to educate our students about the importance of making healthy eating decisions.

School Lunch Hero Day is a nationwide celebration hosted by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author and illustrator of the popular LUNCH LADY graphic novel series and the School Nutrition. Inspired by his own childhood school lunch hero, Jean J. Cariglia, Jarrett J. Krosoczka created the popular LUNCH LADY series of graphic novels for kids, starring a crime-fighting school nutrition professional and her faithful sidekick, Betty. 

School Lunch Hero Day gives schools and communities the opportunity to thank the school nutrition professionals who serve 30 million students each day.
