At ANC Nashville , School Nutrition Association will officially launch the Chef’s Table, a new resource to assist school nutrition professionals seeking new, cost-effective ways to enhance menus, develop new recipes and get students excited about a variety of healthy, nutritious food choices.

The Chef’s Table is comprised of nine chefs (listed below) – five who are already working in school nutrition programs, and four from outside of the school environment – who will advise SNA’s board and members on everything from advocacy and marketing to recipe development, menu enhancement and staff training.

The ANC launch of Chef’s Table will feature three new education sessions to offer SNA members practical advice on how to get local chefs involved in their school nutrition programs in a positive way and how to enhance school recipe development to boost profits and student participation.  These sessions will be the first in an annual series of Chef’s Table education sessions.

SNA members can look forward to hearing more about the Chef’s Table during the Opening General Session at ANC Nashville.
