25 K-12 Foodservice Heroes who fed kids during the coronavirus crisis

Here are some of the submissions from the K-12 schools community that Food Management received in response to its call for nominations of Foodservice Heroes who stepped up during the coronavirus crisis this spring.

When Food Management sent out a call for nominations of Foodservice Heroes—individuals who stepped up beyond the call of duty during the first stage of the coronavirus crisis this past spring—we were swamped with responses from every sector of the onsite dining community…and even a few from outside the community! After reviewing all the submissions, we chose a dozen that we featured in our July/August print issue (the digital version can be found here and then in an online gallery.)

Featured here are other submissions from child nutrition programs of individuals who stepped up to ensure that kids continued to be fed after their school buildings were shut down.

The stories are substantially in the words of the respective nominators and brim with admiration, respect and gratitude for these individuals who went out of their way to ensure that the core mission of child nutrition programs in schools continued to be met—keep the kids fed!
