FANTASTIC FALL! It’s been a fun, fantastic fall, with one holiday, observance or promotion after another—and another after that! We can’t keep up—how do you? Cafeteria teams all across the country put their creativity and spirit in the spotlight through many different events and SN loved them all! National Pickle Day SN could not stop snickering at this hilarious promotion in Lowndes County (Ga.) Schools. Kudos to you for promoting fermented cucumbers (that’s right, people, there’s no such thing as a pickle bush), encouraging kids to give them a try—and for acknowledging that, for many of us, pickles are definitely an acquired taste! BOO to You! The Halloween creativity kept on coming long after we sent our November issue to print. We simply had to include these fun photos from Arizona, Colorado, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee. 50th Day of School Need a fresh fall promotion next year? Here’s a clever, unique observance to consider. The ladies at Floyds Knobs Elementary in Indiana were rockin’ around the clock! Thank you to cafeteria teams throughout Charleston County (S.C.) School District for reminding us that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. VETERANS Day Both active duty and military veterans were welcomed to dine in many school cafeterias, including these in Colorado, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Virginia. Cafeteria teams should take pride in the sheer numbers of special Thanksgiving meals they produced and served for kids and their communities. They gave thanks to their school nutrition colleagues and we give thanks for them! These pictures from sites in Colorado, Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia are just a sampling of what we saw on social media. #NSLW17 Edition SN is taking advantage of its (relatively) new “Things We Love” column to showcase our favorite images from National School Lunch Week 2017 now—we couldn’t wait until spring to share! There were so many great celebrations from coast to coast. The ingredients in your “Recipes for Success” included hashtags, colorful posters, creative contests (draw a picture on a sandwich bag!), games, crazy costumes, new recipe samples, guest servers—and even short videos! After viewing these photos, save ideas to try next year. We’ll preview the 2018-19 NSLW/NSBW themes in the April 2018 magazine. Many thanks to the school nutrition teams in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Minnesota, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Washington for sharing their NSLW spirit with SNA, School Nutrition and social media followers. We wish we had room for all our favorite photos!
