National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day

Date When Celebrated : Wednesday of the second full week in October

Dates:October 14, 2020: October 13, 2021: October 12, 2022: October 11, 2023; October 16, 2024

Today is National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day. As a parent with three kids, I think this could become one of my favorite holidays!

Got kids!? Then, you get to let them "take you to lunch" today. And, you're gonna love it. Go to your child's school and join them for lunch in the school cafeteria. Sounds yummy, doesn't it!? But, actually that's the point. You get to see the hopefully healthy lunch they are getting at school, check out the environment in the cafeteria, and perhaps engage with the cafeteria staff about the quality of the foods your child eats each day. You will have to check with the school administrators, to see if they participate in this increasingly popular program. We also suggest you discuss this with your kids first. This day may only work with lower grade levels. Even then, some kids may be embarrassed to have mom and dad show up in the lunch room.


We are gonna partially hijack this special day with the following suggestion for grown up children:  Take mom and dad to lunch at their favorite restaurant, or a special restaurant you went together as a family. As to who pays, we will leave that up to you and your parents!


History and Origin of National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day:

This holiday appears to be relatively new. It seems to have been created around 2015. Our research has not yet uncovered who created this special day, or the reason why they created it.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a true "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. This was not surprising. National Meatloaf Appreciation Day as is a very new holiday and to date has received little recognition to date.
