Emotional Wellness Is Subject of SN Digital Extra


COVID-19-Cover-May2 image

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and it's a fitting occasion for School Nutrition to investigate the emotional challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, while offering some suggested coping strategies. Anxiety about an uncertain future persists, even as states begin to lift stay-at-home orders. School nutrition programs are extending their meal service operations through the summer, while strategizing multiple scenarios for serving meals when the new school year begins. "Normal" seems far in the future and we all continue to cycle through a range of emotions. This article, our fourth in the magazine's series of COVID-19 digital supplements, addresses the importance of self-care.

Read "Sad, Mad, Bad and Occasionally Rad" on your device or print out a hard copy. Share with team members and other stakeholders as desired. We simply ask that if you share outside of the school nutrition community, credit be provided to: School Nutrition/School Nutrition Association. 

This article is also available as a resource on the COVID-19 tab of SchoolNutrition.org and is included in the digital edition of the May 2020 issue of School Nutrition.

School Nutrition thanks JTM Food Group for their generous support in making this article available.

Look for our next supplement to be released in early June!
