Don’t miss the April issue of School Nutrition, SNA’s award-winning flagship publication, which showcases the upcoming themes for National School Lunch Week (NSLW) and National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) and provides a look back at the exciting celebrations held across the country during last fall’s NSLW. This issue also serves up the highlights of January’s School Nutrition Industry Conference and provides advice and points to ponder if your operation is considering offering mobile meal delivery.

This year’s National School Lunch Week (NSLW) theme, “Get in the Game With School Lunch,” is a great way to underscore the important link between nutrition and physical activity in developing healthy habits for a lifetime. Take the first step in your planning by learning more about the theme, some ideas for celebrating based on your operation’s energy and budget and valuable SNA resources designed to help you “Get the Ball Rolling on NSLW 2014!”

Speaking of NSLW, as part of celebrations held in Fall 2013, cafeterias nationwide showcased their own regional food specialties, while introducing students to exciting new tastes from all across the USA. “School Lunch: An American Staple” offers a cross-country sampling of celebrations held in districts large and small, located in big cities and tiny towns.

Celebrate National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) 2015 and teach your school community how eating school breakfast helps students score high and improve their focus. “Make the Grade With School Breakfast” is your first “study guide” on how to make NSBW a big success, even if you’re short on time or budget—or both!

Couldn’t make SNA’s 2014 School Nutrition Industry Conference in Miami, Fla., or want to review some of the key take-aways? “Find Your Drive. Step up and Strive. Be Confident That You’ll Survive and Thrive.” takes a look at conference highlights.

Taking a cue from a hot trend in commercial foodservice, many school nutrition operations across the country are incorporating mobile meal delivery and service into their program offerings. Could your operation be next? “Vehicles of Change” explores the planning, resources and community support you need to drive your program forward. Bonus Web Content: The Summer Food Service Program can be a good entry to starting up a mobile feeding operation. Learn more about how summer meals can be a great fit.
