Harford County Public Schools Food & Nutrition team consists of over 450 members. This Awarding Winning program is only made possible by great team members. Our team emphasizes food quality and customer service to support students healthy choices. The “Super Hero” Staff are truly more than food service professionals; they are mothers, fathers, aunts, grandparents and the neighbor next door. The dedication and nurturing each of them provides to students is remarkable. 

Educational and training opportunities are provided throughout the year for all staff on important focus areas, current trends, and best practices in school food service. These opportunities may be "home-grown" locals or experts available through partners at the Schools Nutrition Association (SNA), Maryland School Nutrition Association (MdSNA) and the Institute for Child Nutrition (ICN). Nationally recognized credentialing and certification opportunities exist and are strongly encouraged. Locally, the Harford County chapter of the School Nutrition Association (HCSNA), holds fundraising events, educational events and provides networking and support to its members.

Professional Training Conducted by Local Chefs

Cook Smart is a grant funded culinary training program designed to have chefs from the local area teach culinary fundamentals to school nutrition employees. Knife skills, healthy cooking techniques and planning skills are taught throughout the culinary training. These new skills and techniques are then applied to each cafeteria. This encourages students to choose freshly prepared fruits, vegetables and legumes. New dishes are demonstrated in the cafeteria during taste tests. Feedback from taste tests determine what items are placed on the menu. Cook Smart has had over 40 graduates from the culinary training program in Harford County.
