covid-19-toll-on-school-nutrition-programas An article by SNA President Reggie Ross, SNS, is the new cover story for School Business Affairs, the professional journal of the Association of School Business Officials International. A photo of Ross distributing grab-and-go meals is featured on the cover of the February 2021 issue, which provides an overview of school ancillary services during the pandemic.

Ross’ article highlights the tireless efforts of school nutrition professionals to make healthy school meals available to students throughout the pandemic and details the financial toll of COVID-19 on school meal program budgets. Ross urges school business officials to support their school nutrition teams:

“Today, as more students confront food insecurity and meal program losses threaten to impact education budgets, district leaders must take an active role in supporting the success of their school meal programs. School administrations should help address any barriers to accessing school meals and encourage families to take advantage of the safe, healthy school meals offered.”
