School nutrition professionals know there’s always room for innovation—from coming up with new menu items to developing strategies to improve processes for staff members, innovation is likely a part of your daily life.

“A Tale of Two Innovations” highlights two award-winning projects: one from a district in metropolitan Atlanta and one from a rural Alaskan school system. The projects might come from two very different districts and solve very different problems, but they have at least one thing in common: big innovation with rewarding results. Take some time to learn about these two creative endeavors—maybe you’ll even be inspired to make some innovative changes in your own district!
