Food Management is looking for the best K-12 meals in America. We’re showcasing the best in child nutrition—and we’re asking for your help. Does your school nutrition program serve up culinary creations? Let us know!

Rules: Nominated meals must meet USDA requirements under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. Items must be served for reimbursable meals under the National School Lunch or Breakfast programs. Either lunch or breakfast meals are accepted in the competition.

While the entrée will be the main component we’ll be judging for the competition, a full meal with sides that complement the entrée will be given additional points. Judging is done by the Food Management editors. Hi-res photos and good descriptions are paramount as this will be how we judge entries.
