One of our own, Jeanna Quistberg, was awarded the State Louise Sublet Award of Excellence and may be going to the National Convention in Boston to receive her award. This award is for School Nutrition Managers, who have conducted a year-long project which has positively impacted their school nutrition program. The award recognizes managers who have successfully implemented a special idea to improve their school nutrition program.
At Green Park, Jeanna worked with the second graders, explaining MyPlate (see their Website at http://www.choosemyplate.gov/) with a focus on Fruits and Vegetables. She conducted taste tests to help students explore new flavors while promoting new salads into the lunch program. This helped student’s better understand the new Fruit & Vegetable requirements as well.
