June/July 2022

What's Next?

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 SY2022-23 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 SN's 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.
