Commodities/ANC Highlights

School nutrition directors across the United States face many challenges in trying to juggle different requirements that frequently seem to conflict with one another. One of the most precarious tightrope walks is this: How does one balance the need for nutritious menu items with the need for a financially sound program based on high student acceptance?

Believe it or not, commodity food items provided by the government can help. This is not your parents’ school food! School Foodservice & Nutrition reveals the vastly improved quality of commodities in “Precious Commodities.” For cost-saving tips on dealing with the commodity program, turn to “Commodities: Easier Than They Look.”  And read “Point, Click, Commodities” to discover how technology is making commodity ordering easier than ever.

In addition, SF&N brings you “Milking It,” full of useful research on increasing the value of school milk programs. Also, glean ideas for promotions by reading “Celebrate & Educate,” the magazine’s annual round-up of promotional events that took place in schools across America. Next, sit back, relax and enjoy “Believe,” a photo-studded review of the world’s premier school nutrition event: the School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference. Your schedule may be packed with tasks, but SF&N is packed with tips to help you on the way. Enjoy!
