The familiar faces, the walkie-talkie, the friendly smile. Who wouldn’t want to award our lunch ladies or men!
Noontime supervisors, or “Lunch ladies” across southern California are finally being rewarded with the thanks they deserve. A new “I love my lunch lady (or man)” video making contest has come to Stacey Middle School.
To be eligible, an entrant must be a student, teacher, administrator, or parent representing a student. The entrant must create a 1-2 minute video telling the judges, Stacy Sagowitz, John Rivera, and Emily Miramontes, why they love their school lunch hero. Judges are looking for an entry that will “make them feel something,” whether it be laughter or tears.
The “I Love My School Lunch Hero” video contest is produced by the Southern California School Nutrition Association and sponsored by Food Safety Systems and General Mills Foodservice.
The deadline for submission is Friday, April 20, 2018, at midnight. The winners will be announced on National School Lunch Hero Day, May 4, 2018. Any teacher in California may submit one entry.
Wait, what are the prizes?
Students can win $1,000 for with their favorite lunch hero! The student themself though, will not receive anything. $500 will go to the teacher for classroom supplies and $500 to the chosen nominee!
Lunch ladies are dedicated to serving nourishing meals to their students and enjoy the opportunity to engage with them as they pass through the lunch line every day. This is the time to recognize them!
