National Watermelon Day (Aug. 3)
National Watermelon Day comes early in the month, but August is prime watermelon season. At Provo City School District in Provo, Utah, staff encourage students to eat watermelon by carving different designs into the fruit to create works of art on the lunch line.
National Waffle Day (Aug. 24)
Operators can pay homage to the breakfast classic on this food holiday. Last year, Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., set up a make-your-own-waffle station at its Risley Dining Room. Students were encouraged to share their waffle creations on social media with the hashtag #welcomewaffle.
