National School Lunch Week

National School Lunch Week

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy founded the National School Lunch Week! This was a project to promote and encourage the importance of healthy school lunches in a child’s life. In these hectic times, we need to continue to support all the possibilities of providing healthy lunches to students whether they are in school or at home for their education.


As a way to encourage continued healthy lunches, we’ve put together a mix-and-match  (and easy) school lunches for your children! There's 24 different combinations. Then just add some fresh Hamama microgreens grown right from your kitchen!

Need a starter kit, get one now!


Use the helpful guide above to incorporate them into these delicious meals:

  • Salads
  • Wraps
  • Lunchables
  • Pasta Salads
  • Sandwiches

In addition to cooking and preparing healthy meals, here are some fun ways to spruce up a kiddo’s meal.

  • Add a note to show your kids you’re thinking of them
  • Use cookie cutters (on the sandwich, or fruits, or cheese slices)
  • Include a joke or quick sudoku puzzle or coloring sheet with a couple crayons
  • Create silly face containers (would highly recommend reusable containers!!)

If you’re interested in learning more about National School Lunch Week, be sure to check out the School Nutrition Association’s website! They have a variety of resources including a toolkit, handouts, and marketing pieces to spread the word.
