Wisconsin Team Nutrition is excited to host our first ever Teaming Up to Increase Participation workshop. This one-day workshop will feature a dynamic keynote speaker and breakout sessions that feature panel discussions of creative solutions for improving meal program participation. Through facilitated conversation and peer-to-peer discussion, attendees will identify strategies to implement and leave the workshop with a plan of action for moving forward.

Participants will be able to select two of three breakout sessions to attend. The sessions are:

  • Marketing Your Meals – Generation Z are the customers (students) that you are trying to get into your cafeterias. In this session, hear from schools who are effectively marketing to these “screenagers” and their parents. Learn about different communication styles and techniques being successfully used in schools across the state and engage in discussions about how these techniques fit into your program. 
  • Meal Appeal – Making small changes to the cafeteria environment can lead to big changes in your students’ purchasing and eating habits. In this session, you will hear about Smarter Lunchroom strategies that have been successfully implemented in Wisconsin schools and the impact they have had on student selection and satisfaction. Learn about many of the 60 Smarter Lunchroom strategies and build a plan for putting them into action.
  • Serving Up Success – Changing up your style of serving reimbursable meals can have significant impact on the number of students that will want to participate in your programs. Hear success stories from schools who have increased program participation by offering meals in innovative ways and form ideas on making some essential changes inside and outside of your cafeteria. 

Registration for this workshop is $30. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
