Supporting Military Families

The December 2018 issue of School Nutrition magazine encourages you to salute and support the military families in your care. Whether that means hosting unique events; honoring employees, parents and other stakeholders who serve; or dishing up delicious hot meals to this demographic, troops know to find a warm welcome both in your kitchens and in the pages of SN. And there’s plenty more to celebrate! Turn to page 46 for a special #NSBW18 photo round-up. Then, make sure that you’re marketing events like these (whether for military families or just for the love of lunch) effectively with this month’s To Your Credit.

  • Salute & Support Cafeteria teams countrywide celebrate members of the military and their families.  
  • Home Away from Home How does one serve students on military installations outside the United States? Find out here!
  • Honor Guard Hear directly from those who have served in these first-person accounts.
