DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - Decatur Public Schools will be recognizing National School Lunch Hero Day on Friday, May 1.

"Now, more than ever, school nutrition staff deserve our gratitude and appreciations," DPS said.

Aramark's staff have delivered more than 65,000 free meals to Decatur students while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On May 1, DPS will honor those who have stepped up to keep students fed during this time.

Students and families are encouraged to show their appreciation when they pick up their meals by:

  • Making thank you cards to drop off at meal pick up sites
  • Designing appreciation posters
  • Having students dress up as their favorite superhero while picking up meals
  • Decorate vehicles for meal pick up
