Meet SNA President Lynn Harvey

Committed. Caring. And ready to create change. That’s a great description of new SNA President Lynn Harvey, EdD, RDN, SNS, who is excited to lead your organization at a time when children need school nutrition—and need the dedication of SNA members—more than ever before. Get to know Harvey, who shares, in her own words, the exemplary role models and distinctive choices that have readied her for the exciting challenges that lie ahead.

As Harvey now represents a diverse array of members, this issue School Nutrition has something for everyone, too!

Tech Talks in Texas is a follow-up to the June/July article Big D(ata) in the Big D(allas), as author Barry Sackin describes how a department-wide technology change is helping to raise the bar, raise revenues—and lower costs. Smaller district directors can benefit from this advice, too.

Community Opportunity offers a case study of how one school district partnered with new allies in the community to make summer meals a reality for hungry children. A Circle That Draws Everyone In features the best practices of several Indiana school nutrition operations to work collaboratively with Family and Consumer Sciences teachers to develop win-win student projects. Need ideas about possible partners to approach for innovative projects? From young athletes to graphics arts students to members of the local Rotary, you might be surprised where you can Pick a Peck of Partners.

Among SNA’s most vital partnerships are those with its state affiliate associations. But did you know these relationships have never been formalized? That’s about to change. Read more about the collaborative approach SNA took to establishing state affiliation agreements in Beyond the Handshake.

Also in this issue: We continue the conversation about how the clean label movement affects the K-12 school nutrition segment, provide advice on cashier training and offer help in navigating the murky waters of alcoholism and other substance abuse disorders in the workplace. Plus, meet SNA’s 2017 Outstanding Director of the Year: Mark Bordeau, SNS.

Coming Next Month in School Nutrition: The September issue of School Nutrition will recap the highlights of ANC 2017 in Atlanta, inspire you for a new school year with pictures from last spring’s School Lunch Hero Day and shine a spotlight on snack and supper programs.
