2018-19 Promotion Calendar Available Now!


SN Promotion Calendar 2018-19

Back by popular demand, School Nutrition’s 2018-19 Promotion Calendar is live and available now. We know that it was promised at the end of July (and you have our apologies for the delay); however, our production deadline was extended due to our ambitious plans for this year’s version.

When you download the Promotion Calendar, you will find the calendar includes the great features you’ve come to count on each year. You can download it as individual pages or as a whole document, and of course it includes notable people, dates, celebrations and amazing ideas for your school nutrition operations! Additionally, we’ve been hard at work to give this year’s edition some fun new upgrades, so that you’ll be eager to use it this month and every month during the school year.

The new, improved, redesigned Promotion Calendar can be viewed as single pages or printed and hung as a double-sided flippable wall calendar. The fun graphics and bold colors will brighten your office space as you utilize all the latest highlighted dates and nuanced ideas for building increased participation.

There are dates you already know and love, like Mother’s Day, School Lunch Hero Day, Halloween and March Madness. And there are new dates to share, such as Eid al-Fitr, Bastille Day, Goat Cheese Month and National Compliment Day. What’s more? SN has added a two-page menu planning tool! Plan your activities and timelines using a unique, built-in calendar and accompanying check lists.

Don’t wait another moment! Get started with facts, figures, references, thoughts, suggestions, activities and more—all part of this free member benefit produced by the self-same editorial staff of the monthly magazine you know and love. Visit to download the 2018-19 Promotion Calendar today!
