Cafeteria Classroom In Georgia, Richmond County School System’s Nutrition Services team, led by director Kelly Schlein, continues to impress with their savvy, sophisticated efforts to engage student customers in the school meals program. [Editors’ Note: See “Giving Generation Z What They Want,” April 2017, for a deeper dive into their impressive marketing efforts.] The graphics showcased above, simply branded with the department’s “Fueled 4 Focus” logo and tagline, exemplify the word “smart” in how they use math and nutrition education to reinforce, subtly, the connection between healthy eating and academic success. Can you work out the puzzles? WORDS OF WISDOM SN loves these messages of positivity shared via Facebook by the Waltham (Mass.) School Nutrition team. What great advice for all our readers to keep in mind now and throughout the school year! Taco-bout hilarious! Thanks for making us laugh, El Paso (Texas) Independent School District. Watermelon continues to be one of the most versatile mediums for food art. Would you kiss this frog to find a school nutrition prince (or princess) in Tuscaloosa (Ala.) County? Double Take of the Month Wait…what? Strange sights in Edmond (Okla.) Public Schools are captured on social media. #unicorns #ibelieve THE REASON Why This. Is. Everything. These delighted and delightful faces of student joy from cafeterias in Alabama, Arizona, New York and Tennessee, are the reason why school nutrition professionals do what they do—and why SN adores them for it. MERCHANDISING WITH A MESSAGE Kudos to the cafeteria team at Armwood High in Hillsborough County (Fla.) Public Schools for these snack carts decked out with individual posters. While not as slick as, say, the Richmond graphics also earning a shout-out this month (opposite page), the hand-crafted artwork features affirming messages (“End Bullying,” “After it Rains, Look for the Rainbows,” “First Dream Your Life,” “Yes to Success”), catching the eye and engaging the heart.
