The GSN Foundation welcomed over 100 School Nutrition Managers "The Heartbeat of the Program"

Managers learned skills in these areas:

  • Meal Reimbursements
  • Food Demonstrations
  • Using Spices
  • Time Management
  • Diversity
  • Managing Personalities 
In addition to training sessions, attendees got to relax and engage with others who understand working as a school nutrition manager.
