Students are heading back to school, but don’t forget about one of the most important parts of the day - - lunch! Thanks to Fred Espinosa , Director of Food and Nutrition for the San Diego Unified School District and Janelle Manzano , Specialist for the Farm to School Program, students are getting access and education to the “full plate” of their lunches and even growing their own produce to consume!

Join us as we connect with foodservice administrators from California’s second-largest school district, and discover how they are prioritizing fresh produce and nutrition education as part of the thousands of meals they serve each day.  Whether it’s school-site gardens, salad bars, farmer trading cards, virtual farm tours or in-class nutrition education, the San Diego Unified School District is leading the way, when it comes to promoting fresh fruit and veggies.

Join us as we discuss:

  • School meals with updated nutrition standards that require fruits and veggies
  • Farm to School programming in the San Diego Unified School District
  • Creating a hands-on experience for students with school gardens
  • Attending the IFPA Foodservice Conference with other K-12 school foodservice leaders
