31 Days of #RealSchoolFood: @SchoolLunch now served in Twitterverse

A mere 12 months ago you would have been hard pressed to find #SchoolLunch on Twitter. The School Nutrition Association has been tweeting from @SchoolLunch since August 2008 and they have an impressive 20,600+ followers and nearly 5,600 tweets to show for it.

One of the most recent #SchoolLunch tweeters is @FTStarExpress from Star Express Child Nutrition Department, Indianapolis, Indiana. While they only have 18 followers and 50 tweets, they has destined for great things based on the photo they tweeted today of their holiday food displays. WOW is pretty much all we can say!

Great job with tweet + photo

@FTStarExpress is definitely smart to tweet photos. A 2013 study of random selected tweets revealed that ones with photos were almost TWICE as like to be retweeted. @AmyNichols15, School Food Director in South Haven, Michigan, has been serving #RealSchoolFood on Twitter with some great photos. Here’s what was on the #SchoolBreakfast cart this morning!

Sharon Schaefer, SNS (and classically trained chef) tweeting @westside_lunch for Westside High School, Omaha, Nebraska, has been doing a great job with eye-appealing #SchoolLunch meals that are worthy of an upscale bistro. She now has 338 tweets and 142 followers – with more to come soon, we are certain!

Since there’s no way to show ALL the #SchoolLunch Twitter accounts that we follow here, we’ve created a TWITTER LIST of all the #RealSchoolFood folks. It is called, not surprisingly, RealSchoolFood – you can subscribe by going to this link: https://twitter.com/SchoolMealsRock/lists/realschoolfood. Hope to meet you for #SchoolLunch in the Twitterverse!
