National School Nutrition Employee Week is May 5-9

Posted: Updated:
HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

The nation will be celebrating National School Nutrition Employee Week from May 5-9, so be sure to show your appreciation for the men and women working in school cafeterias.

School nutrition professionals must be trained in food safety and sanitation and follow federal, state and local regulations to make sure meals are safe and healthy.

Requirements must meet USDA regulations and implement complex regulations like the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Analysis.

School nutrition professionals also use creativity to make the school cafeteria fun and welcoming all year long, as well as perform their jobs and care for children.

Next time you visit your child's school cafeteria, make sure to thank a school nutrition professional!
