Child Nutrition Vacancy and Turnover Rate Survey

The Chef Ann Foundation, in partnership with the California School Nutrition Association (CSNA), is conducting a survey to better understand California’s school food labor challenges in order to contribute to a dialogue about potential solutions. California has invested heavily in school food programs; however, many school food teams are currently underemployed, and recruiting and retaining labor continues to be a challenge for many school food programs.

We would like to encourage you to please complete the School Nutrition Department Vacancy & Turnover Rate Survey before August 25, 2023. The survey is estimated to take between 20–30 minutes to complete.
