The Hispanic Dental Association embarked on its first National Service & Educational Project on October 2015 during what is now known as the Hispanic Heritage Month. It was then that Lesson in a Lunch Box was started.

The nation-wide, chapter-based service project utilized the “Lessons In A Lunch Box: Healthy Teeth Essentials & Facts About Snacks" to teach first and second grade students about proper nutrition and how to have healthy teeth.
