55 K-12 Foodservice Heroes who made a difference over the past year

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 over the past year to keep kids fed.

When Food Management sent out a call for nominations of Foodservice Heroes—individuals who stepped up beyond the call of duty over the past year in the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we received a large number of nominations from foodservice operations across the country. Earlier, we highlighted 16 individuals from all the nominations we received including several from K-12 meal programs. Featured on the following slides are other submissions from K-12 Schools operations of individuals who stepped up to ensure that kids continued to be fed over last summer and then this school year. The stories are in the lightly edited words of the respective nominators and are listed in alphabetical order of nominees’ last names.
