21 K-12 directors and GMs who made a difference over the past year

Here are some of the submissions for senior administrators from the school nutrition community that Food Management received in response to its call for nominations of Foodservice Heroes who stepped over the past year to keep customers fed.

When Food Management sent out a call for nominations of Foodservice Heroes—individuals who have exemplified the dedication and commitment to their customers and organizations—we received over 400 responses. Earlier, we highlighted select individuals from all the nominations we received, including several from K-12 dining programs. 

However, because we received so many nominations from the K-12 market, we have separated those not included in that earlier listing into categories by job title. Featured on the following pages are submissions from school nutrition operations of senior administrators such as directors, assistant directors and general managers who stepped up to ensure that students continued to be fed over the past year. The stories are in the lightly edited words of the respective nominators and are listed in alphabetical order of nominees’ last names.
