December 2009 SN Cover
As important as it is for school nutrition professionals to be aware of the challenges in feeding children in the United States, in today’s global society, it is also essential to remain up-to-date on the challenges inherent in feeding children in other countries. The December issue of School Nutrition, SNA’s award-winning flagship publication, explores global child feeding efforts, as well as how U.S. school nutrition professionals are getting involved.
“As the World Turns” takes a look at the work of the Global Child Nutrition Foundation (GCNF). From the Global Child Nutrition Forum to the School Feeding Toolkit to needs assessment efforts, GCNF aims to make a difference for children throughout the world.
While the logistics of school feeding programs in various countries may differ because of geographic, political and other factors, the programs are united in a common mission by the desire to ensure that children do not go hungry. In “Site Seeing,” learn about the school feeding efforts in four countries across the globe.
Speaking of “across the globe,” read about the adventures and impressions of an SNA member who has organized cultural education excursions for school nutrition professionals to countries throughout the world in “To Boldly Go...”.
