2018 OSNA Annual Industry Seminar
& USDA Foods Show
Friday, October 12, 2018
Camp Withycombe Armory/Event Center
Tropical & Topical: What’s Hot in School Nutrition
2018 Industry Seminar Program
JoAnne is a school nutrition specialist whose experience in school food service spans 30 years in many different capacities, starting her career as a two-hour dishwasher.
JoAnne is now owner of America’s Meal, a school meal consulting and training firm. An active participant with SNA, she has presented training sessions in well over a dozen states. She seems to make a unique connection with the staff who directly feed the kids — maybe because that is where she fell in love with this field.
An advocate of lifelong learning, JoAnne received two college degrees (and did some doctoral work) after she started working in child nutrition. She has been quoted in USA Today, Parenting Magazine, and The Boston Globe. Her articles have been featured in many state association publications, in Great Possibilities, and in School Nutrition, SNA’s flagship publication.
JoAnne has been called the Rock Star Lunchlady, and the Funny Lunchlady. The best part is that those who attend her sessions don’t just laugh, they always learn.
The annual fall seminar also will feature speaker Deirdre Roache, an insight manager at Kantar Worldpanel with more than six years of market research experience. During that that Deirdre has worked with some of the biggest names in beverages such as Coca Cola, Pepsi and Nestle Waters. Originally from Ireland, Deirdre has been part of the Kantar Worldpanel US team for 18 months and has developed a deep knowledge of the US consumer during that time.
