Speaker Spotlight

Chef Sharon Schaefer, SNS
Executive Director, Evolution of the Lunch Lady
Director of Nutrition Services, Gretna (Neb.) Public Schools

Give us a sneak peek of what you have planned for ANC! Which sessions are you leading during the conference?
I’m over the moon to be doing a Pre-Conference Workshop with the iconic Dayle Hayes and it is going to be amazing. Dayle and I are crafting a list of the top school nutrition resources so that answers and inspiration can be right at your fingertips!

Also, join me on Monday for “Gettin' Saucy with Your Menus!” to add eye-catching video to your digital displays and learn a creative way to perk up any existing menu.

People will be meeting up in St. Louis; whom are you most excited to meet?
I am most excited about connecting with other colleagues and school chefs. SNA’s Chefs Task Force not only has sessions dedicated to culinary concepts, but we also have plans for Chef Meet-Ups to help make connections.

One fun fact most people don’t know about you?
My culinary externship in 1997 was at The Food Network. I was able to work on set, in the control room and meet some amazing chefs. The fact that it was 20+ years ago kind of blows my mind. I don’t feel old enough for that!
