New School Food Service Directors and other individuals with responsibilities related to operating school meal programs can receive support and education through an orientation session series and a mentor program.

The job of a school foodservice director (SFSD) is multi-faceted and complex. It requires an understanding of state and federal regulations, financial management, nutrition, record-keeping, food production, menu planning, food safety and sanitation, customer service, purchasing, and marketing, among other topics. Because of the extensive skills and knowledge required for this type of position, the Project PA mentoring program has been developed as part of a statewide system to meet the training needs of new foodservice directors in Pennsylvania.

The Project PA Mentors are:

Steve Amore| Twin Valley SD (Berks and Chester Counties)
Jenelle Himmelreich | Eastern Lebanon County SD (Lebanon County)
Becky Kammerdeiner | Clarion SD (Clarion County)
Amy Keeler | Brownsville ASD (Fayette County)
Allison Kimmel | Marion Center SD (Indiana County)
