Celebrate School Nutrition Employee Week May 5-9, 2014

Between preparing healthy meals for Minnesota’s students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies and offering service with a smile, school nutrition professionals are true heroes!

School Nutrition Employee Week is the perfect opportunity to recognize the hardworking professionals in school cafeterias across the state. The National School Nutrition Association has designated this week to remind everyone that school nutrition employees are superheroes that deserve recognition.

“Providing nutritional meals is an important part of making sure students can be successful both academically and in the activities they are involved in throughout the school day,” shared Brenda Braulick, president of the Minnesota School Nutrition Association.”  School nutrition professionals make over 750,000 breakfasts and lunches every day to make a difference in the lives of over 800,000 public schools students in Minnesota.”

The Minnesota School Nutrition Association is made up of over 2,900 school foodservice professionals working hard to help children by advancing school nutrition programs in our state.
