Real Food For Kids extends a warm welcome to Rodney Taylor, FCPS' new Director of Food and Nutrition Services.
FCPS completed a national search for a new Director of Food and Nutrition Services, seeking a leader with excellent communication skills, strong experience in school food service management, a track record of accomplishment, and a commitment to shaping national nutritional trends.
Mr. Taylor was previously the Director of Nutrition Services for Riverside Unified School District in Riverside, California where their Farm to School Program takes a comprehensive approach to promoting healthy eating. He is recognized as a pioneer and expert in farm-to-school salad bars and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards including the Center for Ecoliteracy's "Leadership Award", The California Endowment's "Health Heroes" Award, Loma Linda University Award for "The Promotion Of Healthy Lifestyles-For Outstanding Commitment To The Public's Health", and the Riverside Human Relations Commission's "Heroes Award".
We are so excited to have Rodney Taylor join FCPS and look forward to working with him in the upcoming months and years!
