CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Cedar Falls is getting ready to thank lunch-time employees.

Friday is School Lunch hero Day and Cedar Falls Schools plan to celebrate.

The nutrition staff in the district serve lunch to more than 3,000 students every day. They also have to follow strict nutrition standards.

The employees recently started a "food waste recovery" program so that items that are prepackaged, but not eaten, don't go to waste. Instead, they get donated to the food bank.
