Read the August Issue of School Nutrition Magazine


sn-august-cover2019Listen, we need to talk.

Communication is ever-changing thanks to changes in tech, the workplace, environments and so much more. (Even LOL doesn’t have the same meaning it did 10 years ago.) In the August edition of School Nutrition, the magazine examines how we communicate in the workplace, giving you tips, reminders and refreshers for how to handle certain conversations and situations and how to effectively communicate your department’s stories. Ever wonder when to send an email over creating an in-person meeting? (And do you need a refresher on when it is ok to hit “reply-all” to an email?) Or, have you seen some great live video on Facebook and other social media channels but are unsure of how to start the endeavor yourself? And, did you know that gossip can actually benefit your workplace? These are just a few of the communication-related topics the August issue offers.

But communication is just one of many topics in the issue! This issue also contains a love letter to the versatile and tasty tomato—which is in peak season right now. You’ll learn about the many tomato varieties and how to use them for delectable school meals. From soups to stews, raw to roasted, tomatoes can elevate just about any dish. Now is the time to learn how to reap their benefits.

And we can all agree that those working in school foodservice are super heroes, but did you also know they can be ninjas, too?! Ninja Warrior and lunch lady Amanda O’Dell discusses her time on American Ninja Warrior and how she’s using the sport and television platform to change the perception of school meals.

All that and more await you in the latest issue of the magazine! The August edition of School Nutrition will certainly motivate you and help you make this back-to-school season the best yet. Check out the new issue today!
