This year’s National School Lunch Week was an outstanding Success. Lintons Food Service Staff energized their students with delicious flavorful meals, lots of enthusiasm, and wide eye giveaways. Encouraging healthy choices in the cafeteria is at the forefront of our minds. Here at Lintons we nourish healthy students, use local produce whenever possible and incorporate encouraging promotional events.
As part of our NSLW Promotion, each school received prizes to entice the students to make the right choices when it comes to lunch. Lintons staff was thrilled to present the Barnes and Noble NOOKs to the winning students! While not every student could receive a NOOK, each student walked away a winner in nutrition.
National School Lunch Week is a weeklong celebration of the school lunch program. Research has proven, children who participate in the school lunch program receive superior nutrition compared to those who do not participate.
Lintons holds great value in providing our students with fresh and nutrient rich foods every day. It is with great excitement that we celebrate national School Lunch Week with continued nutritious lunch options, as well as fun and educational giveaways!
This year the theme for National School Lunch Week is “School Lunch Snapshot”! It’s about sharing the best, real images of today’s school lunch—fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, milk, and happy students.
After months of planning, The 11th Annual NHS Goals for Giving benefit has finally commenced. Courtney Dininny of the corporate office, sung her heart out once again to the Star Spangled Banner. As in the years prior, Brian Propp led the Flyers Alumni team to victory against the NHS Blues players. While Lintons CEO Chris Dunton fought hard for the team, it was not enough to dominate the game and end the Flyers Alumni winning streak. From the moment Debbie Woolston dropped the puck you could feel the enthusiasm from both the players and the crowd. Over 31 Gift Baskets were created, along with events like “Chuck a Puck”, silent auctions, and raffle prizes, providing entertainment for all ages. The Family of John Scheck was presented the “Player of the Game Award”, and as a founding member of Goals for Giving, John’s #18 Jersey was retired. John fought a courageous battle with cancer, and his passion for helping others is not forgotten.
As NHS Human Services Foundation Board Members, Chris Dunton and Brian Propp, along with Chairman John Krol, NHS Director of Development Dorian Smith, and NHS Vice President Frank Guthridge, brought this year’s totals to an all-time high of $118,224. The success of the 2015 Goals for Giving cannot be attributed to the players and chair members alone. Staff, friends, family, and countless supporters helped make this event a huge success. For the past 11 years, the NHS Human Services Foundation Goals for Giving Hockey Benefit has raised $386,000 to support the wonderful programs and services NHS provides on a daily basis. This year’s donations will focus its efforts on the “Pantries of Pride” within the NHS communities, providing food and nourishment to the many individuals that struggle with hunger every day.
