Candid conversations with leaders in school nutrition, food systems, farm 2 school advocates, and more. If "the medium is the message" then everything in school nutrition is marketing - or at least an opportunity to share your story. From the food we source to the smiles that go with our service, everything creates an impression and shapes a story. Get inspired by the people that are changing nutritional opportunities for our children every day.

Season 1, Episode 4: Chef Patrick Garmong of the Institute of Child Nutrition

The guest for this episode is Chef Patrick Garmong, the Associate Director of Culinary Education and Training with the Institute of Child Nutrition. He’s also the host of The Mixup, an iBites Podcast that I highly recommend.

Chef Patrick has a rich career history in food service. He trained at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, has been an Executive Chef in restaurant, catering, and educational settings, and served for five years as the Child Nutrition Director for the Ellensburg School District in Washington state.  

We had a wide-ranging talk about the amazing resources that the Institute provides at no cost for schools across the country, as well as Chef Patrick’s career path and why school nutrition is a great and too often overlooked path for culinary professionals.

And if you watch the TV show The Bear, we also touch on that and the changing culture of food service.

Season 1 Teaser & Intro

For more than a decade we’ve worked with school nutrition programs to help tell their stories, boosting participation, engagement, and awareness of the amazing work that happened each and every day in schools across the country.

And now we’re sharing more of those stories with you on the School Meal Marketing podcast. We believe that everything can be marketing, from your visual branding to the way you talk about your program. It also encompasses things like where your food comes from, how your staff is equipped and empowered to serve children, and even how you navigate challenges.
