Welcome Back, Ruby Reader! Ruby Reader roamed farther than ever before this past winter, visiting members in their hometowns, joining their family activities and even jetting off with them to exotic destinations like Peru and Iceland. She fed her curiosity by observing how SNA members teach students the importance of healthy meals, attending training workshops with her fellows in foodservice and participating in some of their favorite off-the-clock hobbies. (See “Ruby Reader: Globe-Roamer Extraordinaire!” March 2017). Again, she was able to witness and appreciate the many ways that members incorporate lessons from SN into their daily routines and learn about their rich, full lives—both inside and outside of the cafeteria. After her heart-warming visits, Ruby is back to home base for the fifth annual “What’s Ruby Reading?” contest—and she’s upping her game. Ms. Reader was so enthusiastic about what she’s read and learned in past years, she can now be found in 25 different pages throughout this issue! She knows that every page—from cover to cover—inspires, informs and instructs. Discover what Ruby is reading in this June/July 2017 issue and not only will you win in your professional development efforts, you could win a prize, too! Here’s how to play: Ruby can be found hiding in 20 different advertisements and 5 articles. Find all 25 hiding spots and identify the places and pages on the entry form (opposite page). Note the name of the article or the advertiser, as well as the page number. But be warned: You will have to look closely to spot her! Once you’ve found all 25 pages that Ruby is “reading,” fill out the official entry form completely and submit it to School Nutrition. Entries with 100% correct responses will be entered in a prize drawing and 25 lucky winners will be selected at random. Prizes range from gift cards to tablets to equipment for your operation and more! You can submit your entry in one of four ways: 1) FAX the form on the opposite page to (301) 686-3115.
