This year’s winner is Saint Paul Public Schools’ Nutrition Services Director Jean Ronnei in Minnesota. Thanks to Ronnei, deep fryers have been banned from cafeterias and students have constant access to fresh produce. The runners-up include Spartanburg District Seven of South Carolina as well as Novato Public School District and Sand Path Academy, both in California. Memphis City Schools of Tennessee, Greeneville County Schools of South Carolina, and District of Columbia Public Schools of Washington, DC were rewarded with honorable mentions.
