Take Your Parents to Lunch – October 17th


I never heard of such a thing, but I’m loving the idea! I would love to eat lunch with my son at school, but being 12 years old, he probably doesn’t want me to come to his school and sit with him. But if many other parents were going to be there, then maybe….

Apparently on October 17, parents across the country will be sitting down with their child to eat lunch together in their school’s cafeteria. Do they get to eat the school food too?

Will you go to lunch with your children?





I will be entered in a drawing for sharing this information with you. But I probably would have anyway.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
