Children's book author and illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka has created "School Lunch Superhero Day" on May 3. As he explains in the video on that page, he chose the date as a tribute to his own Gates Lane School lunch lady growing up, Jean Carigilia.
I also discovered this morning that Mr. Krosoczka is going to be celebrating the day here in Worcester:
@cascadingwaters That is AMAZING! I'll be celebrating at Gates Lane, where @firstbook & @randomhousekids will be giving books to every kid!

...which is pretty cool. You can also nominate your school nutrition people for the "Cafeteria of Justice" over on this page.
School nutrition staff are sometimes the "invisible" staff that we don't think of. Please take a chance to thank them next week!
