Like many folks in the nutrition world, I’ve had a very busy fall – but it’s nothing compared to the intensity of day-to-day operations in school food programs. Up early to serve breakfast and staying late for meetings … applying for grants and rolling out new programs … building farm to school relationships and creating cooking classes … coping with shortages of high demand products and breathing deeply through other round of school lunch bashing … trying to find good employees and handling school closures for storms or bomb threats … for all of this and more … THANK YOU!!
To all those who work in school nutrition, a toast to a job well done and a well-deserved winter break. Here’s hoping that you enjoy your favorite beverage (wine, sparking grape or hot cocoa), find time to renew your enthusiasm for feeding children well, and enjoy all the blessings of the season.
We’ll finish up the 31 Days of #RealSchoolFood over the holidays … celebrating with your photos and success stories. Happy Holidays!
