Speaker Spotlight


Kim Lear
Generations and Workforce Strategy Expert

What are the three most important innovative trends you see that relate to school meal programs?

  • Demographic shifts: A new generation of parents have elevated expectations about their children's health, wellness and food choices.
  • Low unemployment: The food industry is experiencing a talent shortage so recruitment and retention have become even more important.
  • Increased competition: Kids have more choices than ever when it comes to accessing food.

Give us a sneak peek of what you have planned for SNIC in your session!

I'm going to shed light on what makes each generation tick and how these generational patterns impact staff recruitment and retention.

What are you most excited for at SNIC 2019?

To meet the wonderful professionals who make up the school nutrition industry.

Fun fact most attendees don’t know about you:

I had my first baby 10 months ago. Parenthood is crazy.
