April 16, 2016

In conjunction with our Healthy School Food Maryland coalition, RFKM will be hosting a Salad Bar Summit on April 16, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Our keynote speaker will be Rodney Taylor, Director of Food and Nutrition Services for the Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia. Mr. Taylor’s keynote address from 9:00-10:30 a.m. will focus on his background in implementing farmer’s market salad bars in all 31 elementary schools in the Riverside Unified School District and bringing 100% salad bar selection through his Salad Bars First (SB1) program. Through this program, children’s understanding of a healthy meal was transformed, as children were encouraged by adults to eat a rainbow, fill the center of their plates with fresh produce and the hot entrée became more of an afterthought. Subsequent workshops until 12:30 p.m. are open only to invited stakeholders.
