Read the November Issue of School Nutrition Magazine

2019-10-30

sn-november-cover2019This month, School Nutrition is spicing things up a bit: For the November issue, the magazine’s editorial staff wanted to give readers a more direct route to influence its content. Earlier this year, we polled our readers via SNA’s social media channels to see what topics they wanted to learn more about. Starting with eight broad categories, we asked magazine fans to choose the ones they felt the greatest urgency for a little extra knowledge and guidance. Over 1,000 votes were cast, and we had three clear winners, which lent themselves to further discernment for articles that would provide a fresh and useful spin.

Thanks to reader feedback, SN is diving into three very relevant and informative topics. First, angel funds have become one answer to the unpaid meal debt crisis currently plaguing school nutrition departments. But just how helpful and angelic are they really? Second, do you need some team-building activity inspiration for your next in service? Check out these fun team-building exercises guaranteed to help create a more cohesive and efficient team. And, we are all likely to be familiar with the “Big 8” allergens, but what happens when a student has an allergy that falls outside of that spectrum?

What else is cracking this month? We’re showing you the versatility of the omelet and how they are egg-cellent breakfast (or breakfast-for-lunch) options at your school. And while it may take a little extra manpower; a made-to-order omelet station could help increase meal participation. Speaking of great protein sources, is your department fully utilizing the power of the mighty legume?

Move over Han Solo: The evil Emperor of Trans Fats and his minions the Grab-and-Go Goblins have unleashed the destruction of the No-Time-To-Eat Black Hole that will ultimately destroy Planet Breakfast! There is only one interstellar crew that can save this planet from annihilation: Admiral “Sir Crunch” Apple and the Intergalactic Crew of Spaceship School Breakfast! Are you ready to take on the National School Breakfast Week (#NSBW20) mission, March 2-6, 2020? Learn more about this year’s theme (and cast of characters), SchoolBreakfast: Out of This World, which features fun artwork and fantastic resources, all thanks to the generous support of official campaign partner Kellogg’s.

There are topics you may steer away from talking about—climate change, unions, minimum wage, employee retention, contract management companies. But your colleagues and other business associates likely have opinions on these and other tricky topics and would like to discuss them. However, if not handled correctly, these conversations could elevate into heated debates. With help from SN’s December issue, learn how to court controversy when it comes to important issues relevant to K-12 foodservice.
