The Month Ahead



  • In February, we will promote the Layers of Flavor culinary training and the importance of knife skills with a blog post and ad in the SNA’s SN Express online newsletter. We will continue to promote the Feed Your Immune System campaign through Facebook and Twitter. We are also launching a label maker giveaway with the School Nutrition Services Dietetic Practice Group (800+ members) to reach school nutrition dietitians and gather school foodservice recipes featuring fresh mushrooms. The recipes we gather will be posted on our website in March.

Highlights from January




  • In January, Mushrooms in Schools launched an immunity-themed web page with school-friendly immunity resources, including a free printable kid’s activity page, which we encourage you to share with consumers and sales teams. We also published a blog post on mushroom consumer trends and how mushrooms can be incorporated into school meal menus to capitalize on these trends.
