The School Foodservice Forum connects the produce industry with K-12 school foodservice buyers. This two-day program is hosted by the United Fresh Start Foundation and brings together leading school foodservice directors, buyers from the nation’s largest and most progressive school districts, to walk the trade show floor and meet with the industry, as well as participate in education sessions that address best practices, challenges, and new and creative ways to source and serve fresh produce on school menus.
Everyday across America more than 31 million children participate in the National School Lunch Program and more than 11 million children participate in the School Breakfast Program. Because of this, school districts are often called the “largest restaurant in town.” The School Foodservice Forum provides an opportunity for the produce industry to engage directly with school foodservice directors, share new and innovative products and packaging, and discuss ways to best service schools.
Our nation’s children rely on dedicated school foodservice directors to create healthy and delicious menu items. The United Fresh Start Foundation is committed to helping schools create “healthy school food environments” that make the healthy choice, the easy choice for children every day.
