A Fresh Approach to Education

Welcome to the School Food Institute

The School Food Institute gives school food service professionals and childhood nutrition advocates the in-depth training, operational skills, and strategic vision necessary to make school food fresh, healthy, and sustainable. Our engaging online courses give you a front row seat in Chef Ann Cooper’s classroom, where you can learn directly from a leader in school food change on how to transition school meal programs to scratch-cooked operations that provide real, healthy food to kids at school every day.

Whether you are a school food professional, a parent, a teacher, an administrator, or an advocate of healthy food for all, we have something for you at the School Food Institute. Enroll today and be part of the movement to get fresh, healthy food to every child, every day.
