We wouldn’t coat anything on the lunch menu in a lot of added sugar. Which is we’re also not sugarcoating the fact that the 2022-23 school year will have plenty of challenges, just as we’ve seen over the past two school years. But we’re focused on being positive instead of negative—and our June/July 2022 issue is all about being resilient, tireless, inventive and pretty much unstoppable when it comes to our mission of getting nutritious meals to students. Check out our full lineup of articles all about how you and your team can prepare for the year ahead, take better care of yourselves in the process, and see your school nutrition program continue to thrive.

READY for What’s Next
We’re talking directly to school nutrition professionals themselves about the problems they’re facing and how they’re solving them, including changes they’ve had to implement, strategies they’ve had to follow, and innovative methods they’ve counted on. Take advantage of their insight and consider what methods might work for your team in your own school district.

Riding Out the Storm
Supply chain delays and labor shortages are just some of the major challenges you and your fellow school nutrition professionals are currently facing and will likely continue to face in the upcoming year. Overcoming these challenges means understanding the reality and coming up with a plan that will help you push through until it’s smooth sailing again.

You Are Not Alone
The past two school years have been stressful, and it looks as if we have another bad one ahead of us. But other school nutrition professionals across the country are enduring the same challenges as you, and there are ways you can rise above the obstacles, gain support from those around you, and continue leaving an impact on the most important people of all: your students.

Little Bits of Good
For 50 years, the School Nutrition Foundation has provided scholarships for members seeking professional development and national conference attendance, equipment grants, research funding, and education/training. At the center of its mission are four simple words that convey a big message—get, give, learn, teach.

Plug In and Power Up at #ANC22
It’s been three years, but our Annual National Conference has lost none of its steam—in fact, the 2022 event is looking as if it’s going to be better than ever. Taking place in Orlando, ANC 2022 brings together 800 booths featuring the latest solutions for your school meal challenges, plus networking and development opportunities. We’re giving you the full breakdown of everything you can look forward to as this year’s conference.

It’s a one-stop shop for food, beverages, equipment, technology, supplies and resources, all brought together to help you solve any problems your cafeteria team might be facing. We have a full list of all the exhibitors you can expect, plus tips on how you can make the most of so many resources in such a short amount of time.

Southern Comfort
Traditional dishes of the American South are diverse, reflecting a range of cultural influences, from Indigenous tribes to Caribbean immigrants and everyone in between. Preparing and serving southern dishes in your school cafeteria not only introduces your students to all kinds of new flavors and foods but also to important history and heritage.
