Read the January Issue of School Nutrition Magazine

2020-01-06

january-cover2020 Is giving back on your list of 2020 resolutions, but you’re not quite sure how to go about volunteering? Fortunately, SN can help make this a reality with its January issue—the first of the decade! Volunteering opportunities abound—they can be found just about anywhere from directly in your community to the deepest regions of cyberspace. You can lead a scout troop, read to hospital patients, help natural disaster victims or walk shelter dogs. Without leaving the comfort of your own home, you can provide marketing strategies to a non-profit, design a website, manage email marketing, develop an app and so much more. There is a volunteer opportunity for just about anyone! But do you know how to find an opportunity that’s right for you? (And are there roadblocks stopping you from giving your time?)

In addition to giving back to others, volunteering can help us, too. In fact, the act of giving back has a host of health benefits. But after you’ve signed up to coach Little League, serve at the food bank or work at the local theater, you may be feeling burnt out. Should you find yourself overstretched with volunteer responsibilities, discover some ways to cope.

Check out SN’s January issue to find inspiration and motivation to volunteer through the stories of SNA members who are doing just that. From foster dog parent to Red Cross rescue mission leader, members share anecdotes of why and how they give back and how it’s impacted their lives.

Eating turkey has become synonymous with holiday dinners, but turkey is an incredibly versatile protein that can be used in place of ground beef, pulled pork and chicken breast—and seasoned in much the same way. (Ever thought about using turkey in a mouthwatering cheesesteak sandwich?) Here are some words about the bird.

As a manager, have you set the standards for your team, and are they buying into the shared goal? Are you nurturing their full potential? Sometimes, managers overlook these duties and by falling into these mistakes—and others—they are creating a dysfunctional environment for their staff and their team. Learn several common managerial mistakes and how to correct them.

All that and more can be found in the first issue of this decade of School Nutrition!
