School nutrition professionals continue to contend with challenges as the pandemic stretches on.  Many have risen to these challenges however by responding with ingenuity, creativity and boldness to ensure the show goes on and children receive their school meals everyday. 

In this webinar, No Kid Hungry California, in partnership with four Southern California County Public Health Collaboratives, you heard from school nutrition leaders from Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange Counties. They presented new and innovative ways for school nutrition professionals to consider refreshing their service to get off auto-pilot and out of crisis mode. We hope you got some best practices and were inspired to refresh your meal service.

A big thank you to our speakers!
