My name is Tracy Zaniewski, I am a dietetic intern from UMass and will be working closely with the new food service director, Sasha Palmer, during the fall. I attended Holyoke Community College and UMass, Amherst for my undergrad in nutrition, then was accepted into the UMass dietetic internship program back in the spring. I am very excited to be able to do my food service rotation within a public school system because I feel there is so much to learn, both for myself and the schools.
Though school meals have come a long way just within the past few years, there are still adjustments and improvements to be made. I look forward to talking with students and staff about ways to improve school meals through surveys and taste testing. I also plan to implement a theme meal that will incorporate nutritious foods while still being tasty and fun for the students. I will be in the middle school (ARPS food service office) 3-4 days a week if you have any questions, suggestions, or want to drop in and say hi please feel free. You can also reach me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Director of Food Service for Amherst, Pelham, and the Amherst-Pelham Regional School District. We'll be posting updates to the program as we go along!.
