For the last 10 years, for today, and for the future.
We recently launched brand new Chef Ann Foundation and The Lunch Box websites! Our team has been hard at work for several months, building new content, resources, and an enhanced user experience. Here are some of our favorite new areas to explore:
Why Scratch Cooking - learn how scratch cooking can directly combat diet-related medical problems
Sustainable Lunchrooms - check out this extensive case study detailing how one district tackled an ambitious sustainability plan
COVID-19 Resources for schools - info on grants & funding, operational resources, free and reduced meal applications, and more
Last month, the USDA announced it will extend school meal flexibilities through as late as Dec. 31, 2020, including the waiver to allow free meals for all children into the fall. Click here to read the full press release.
We are so excited to introduce you to Brandy Dreibelbis, CAF's new Director of School Food Operations. Check out this post on our blog to learn about Brandy's school food experience & what she brings to the Chef Ann Foundation team.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the face of school food. At CAF, we want to understand where your operations are, and ask that you fill out this short survey to let us know what your program is like and the challenges you're currently facing. We appreciate any and all information you're willing to share!
This is our last installment of Hero Highlights: Stories from the Field. To ensure the incredible stories of our school food workers are being told, we've been sharing multimedia stories featuring school food workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 hunger crisis.
With high unemployment rates and grocery difficulties, many families have become food insecure for the first time. We encourage districts to spread the word in their communities about free and reduced applications. Click here for resources from the USDA.
