Serving up USDA Foods Photo Contest

The “Show us Your Tray” contest might have a new name, but we still want to see how you “Serve up USDA Foods” in your school meals!

Inspire other child nutrition professionals and submit a picture of your most creative meal utilizing direct-delivered USDA Foods. It could be a breakfast or a lunch meal. With over 200 USDA Foods items available, we want to highlight the innovative ways in which they can be used.

Show us how you use USDA Foods proteins, fruits, vegetables, grains, and dairy to liven up your meals! Your submissions will provide child nutrition professionals with healthy, creative, student-approved meal ideas utilizing USDA Foods.
