Feeding Students in a Pandemic: Celebrate and Learn From School Nutrition Heroes

Thursday, August 13, 2020

School nutrition professionals across the country have been incredibly innovative and shown a commitment to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that children across the country continued to be fed, even when schools closed suddenly in the spring due to the pandemic. In this session, the speakers will highlight the efforts of districts across the country. In particular, they will present examples of innovation, out-of-the-box solutions, and accomplishments with the goal of celebrating what was done and sharing critical learnings that can be carried forward. They will include best practices and practical tips that attendees may incorporate into their own plans for the unusual circumstances school nutrition staff now face.

1. Assess your own school district’s potential for innovative approaches to meal delivery during a pandemic.
2. Utilize best practices to provide meals to students in the school building and off-site during a pandemic.
