NMSNA “School Food Professional of the Year” Nominations
The 2rd Annual School Food Professional of the Year Award will recognize and celebrate an innovative School Food Professional in New Mexico that is connecting local, healthy food to their students, families, and school staff through purchasing and education. We are asking YOU, NMSNA members, to help us select the recipient of this award.
We are looking for individuals who believe in the importance of fresh, healthy food on the plates of their students, and walk their talk by purchasing local food (though state appropriated monies and/or out of own budget) as much as possible throughout the school year. We are also looking for nominees that go beyond purchasing New Mexico grown food and have found ways to integrate education about New Mexico agriculture and nutrition into their programs.
Once all nominations are received, a review committee from the New Mexico Food & Agriculture Policy Council will select the awardee. The awardee will be honored at the 2018 Food and Farms Day and School Nutrition Day by the NMSNA President, Shelley Montgomery.
