This article presents program ideas from school food service directors in the U.S. According to John Wahl of Drake Center, they held a contest for employees in a bid to encourage them to lose some weight in a set time period. Ben Colafrancesco of State University of New York says they positioned healthy items right after the entrance to the dining halls so that students would be more influenced to choose healthier options. Don Cappello of Fallbrook Union High School District says they reworked some of their dishes to do an international day.
