Food co-ops which serve area school districts are finding innovative ways to deliver quality food items to students during the pandemic, such as small, prepackaged meals. Harris County Department of Education’s Choice Partners joins with other food co-ops throughout Texas to host an inaugural Virtual Expo 2020 “Making It Work” children’s nutrition food service expo from Sept. 29-Oct 1.

The three-day event features new presentations each day, including approximately 100 vendors that offer food, small-wares, equipment and software products and services to area school districts participating in school nutrition programs. To date, about 900 attendees from school districts, municipalities and government nonprofits have registered.

The event provided by co-ops in Texas is cosponsored by Choice Partners, Multi-Region Purchasing Cooperative, Region One, Region 5, Region 7, Region 8, West Texas Food Service Cooperative, Texas 20 and Sodexo.

Live speaker sessions pack the expo agenda, which features new presentations daily. Special presentations from the Food Network spotlight recipes and cooking techniques with celebrity chefs like Jason Smith. Expo sessions focus on procurement; USDA waivers and community foods; and Texas Department of Agriculture updates. Meetups and chats with industry partners will be included.

The event is free. Register today: https://tinyurl.com/y2yf9lwo
