Today (May 5th) The Brandywine School District is celebrating School Lunch Hero Day! It is the annual and national event to celebrate all of our schools’ nutrition staff. Over the past year The Brandywine School District Nutrition Team has been working harder than ever during the pandemic to feed our students. They have adjusted to all of the changes with passion and a smile on their faces!

As part of this year’s celebration, The Brandywine School District will be hosting a book signing and sale with Delaware native and award winning author Jennifer Antonik. The signing will take place during their weekly curbside distribution of meal boxes from 11:15 am – 12: 15 PM at Spring Middle School.

Boxes of Love¬†was written and illustrated Jennifer Antonik. It is the story of a young student who is sent on a mission to discover how “boxes of love” are created and filled with delicious foods for him and his classmates. On his mission, he meets a diverse group of farmers who show him what it’s like for many of the hard working farmer families in America. At the end of the book, he goes back to his school to help the cafeteria staff with his new found knowledge on “boxes of love.” He is so grateful for their work that he organizes a parade with his classmates to say “thank you.”

The children’s book is a story from the heart and was written to show gratitude to our school lunch heroes! They were beacons of hope for many families through out the pandemic for students and their families.

Meal boxes will be available at the time of the signing. They are free to all children 18 and under. You don’t have to be present or a Brandywine School District student to pick up a box. BSD School Nutrition provides one box per child. Families can select a 7 day meal box for remote learners, or 3 or 5 day meal boxes for hybrid students. More information at @BSDBrandyDine.
