Ware Shoals School District 51 to Honor the School Lunch Heroes Serving Healthy Meals Celebrating School Lunch Hero Day on May 6, 2022 Our school cafeteria heroes work every day to make heroes of the students they serve. Between preparing healthy food, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, Ware Shoals School District 51 nutrition professionals have a lot on their plate. To celebrate their hard work and commitment, Ware Shoals School District 51 schools will celebrate School Lunch Hero Day on May 6. School Lunch Hero Day provides an opportunity for parents, students, school staff and communities to thank those who provide healthy meals to our students each school day.
