National School Lunch Week will emphasize the healthy foods that are offered daily at Newton-Conover City Schools. “School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and less fat and sodium” said Tara Kelley, Newton-Conover City Schools Director of School Nutrition. “National School Lunch Week helps us educate parents and students about all the benefits of our lunch program, and the appealing choices we offer”.
