Social-ize Your Marketing Excerpt from School Nutrition Magazine, Vol. 75, Number 6, Page 69

The social media pages of many school nutrition programs saw a huge uptick in parent engagement while students were learning from home. Even once students are back in school buildings, make an effort to create and post social media content that will catch parents’ attention. Top tips from school nutrition operators include: ✓ Polls and surveys

FALL 2021 ✓ Collaborations with local restaurants/chefs ✓ Community partnerships and outreach activities (e.g. food bank distribution during school lunch service) ✓ Photos of costume/themed activities featuring your team members, as well as student customers ✓ If your school nutrition department has its own, separate social media presence, ask your district to highlight/share your posts once a week on its channel(s) ✓ Be responsive by liking comments and replying to questions or concerns; even negative feedback can be addressed by requesting to “continue the conversation offline”

FreshBites ✓ Photos of their kids (make sure you have signed releases!) ✓ Local foods and the area farms (and farmers) ✓ Favorite school meal recipes scaled for home cooking ✓ “How-to” videos for at-home meal kits or recipes
