The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented challenge with immediate impacts on public and economic health. It has radically changed relationships across the globe. Our personal relationships have been radically altered as we've learned to socially distance ourselves, wear face masks when walking or shopping, smile more with our eyes, and nod or wave our greetings. We're holding Zoom meetings and classes and forming exclusive social “pods” of quarantine buddies and sharing meals virtually.

Posted by: Staff on Wednesday, June 17, 2020

We are heartbroken, angry and deeply saddened by the repugnant displays of police violence against Black People and other People of Color across our country. Our deeper heartbreak, anger and sadness is over the social injustice, systemic racism and lack of accountability that have long defined and divided our country.

When school resumes in the fall (or late summer) of 2020, school foodservice will look different. Schools, already challenged by the pandemic, will change operations. Some districts are surveying parents about re-opening schools and some are asking about school lunch. The School Nutrition Association is leading a series of Zoom meetings to help their members gear up for re-opening. Nutrition educators who teach nutrition and health in classrooms and cafeterias will want to be aware of the challenges and opportunities ahead and consider how to work with school partners.

The Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior's Research Division is focused on three functions: 1) engaging members in research through capacity building and networking; 2) increasing the rigor of submissions to JNEB; and 3) bringing together students and researchers to strengthen the potential of future nutrition educators. Mentorship is central to these functions, and mentors have been found to exist laterally, virtually, and among peers. Peer-to-peer mentoring among students and researchers can offer not only traditional research support and guidance but also provide insights and connections within SNEB that can work to support the Society as a whole.
