Getting Help and Cash: Building Relationships and Finding Funding

Adam Brumberg, Deputy Director, Cornell Food and Brand Lab, will present on how school food service organizations can build relationships with external organizations and find funding. He will focus on ways to make partners out of some of the groups that often criticize lunchrooms. Adam will also cover partnering with national and local organizations that already exist and are doing excellent work in helping schools to achieve their wellness and food service goals. Finally, he will explore some potential funding sources and how to best position your school to apply for or take advantage of them.

Learning Objectives: 
  • Identify groups external to the school that can provide resources and help to the cafeteria staff and the food service director.
  • Identify some potential funding sources.
  • Identify how to look for partners in your region.
