SNA Releases 2017-18 Promotion Calendar


SNA's 2017-18 Promotion Calendar

For most school nutrition professionals, school is back in session and the word BUSY takes on a whole new meaning. With all the responsibilities you’re juggling, how will you find time for planning promotion ideas for the months ahead? After all, special cafeteria promotions are among the most tried-and-true strategies for building participation. Children are attracted by special events and activities that make the cafeteria fun and full of pleasant surprises.

If you seek fresh ideas—and new events to celebrate—this free member service produced by the editorial staff of School Nutrition magazine is now available in an easy-to-download PDF format for at-your-fingertips reference with your team. It includes monthly, weekly and daily celebrations for the 2017-18 school year, as well as suggestions for decorations, costumes and activities, along with fun facts to get you started.

We know many of you are old pros at celebrating National School Lunch and Breakfast Weeks, as well as School Lunch Hero Day, not to mention such traditional holidays as Halloween and Valentine’s Day. But what about National Hispanic Heritage Month, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week or Pi Day? Visit (member login required) to get started utilizing this SNA member benefit and begin planning your cafeteria’s calendar of celebrations!
