JoAnneRobinettAbout JoAnne

JoAnne Robinett is a School Nutrition Specialist. Her school food service spans 30 years in many different capacities – starting her career as a two hour dishwasher. Retired from day-to-day supervision; her programs were recognized as “Excellent” and “Stellar”. Currently, she is owner of “America’s Meal”, a school meal consulting and training firm. An active participant with the School Nutrition Association; she has presented training sessions in well over a dozen states for audiences of business officials, child nutrition professionals, and industry partners. She seems to make a unique connection with the staff that directly feeds the kids – maybe because that is where she fell in love with this field.

An advocate of lifelong learning, JoAnne received two college degrees (and did some doctoral work) AFTER she started working in Child Nutrition. JoAnne has been quoted in USA TodayParenting Magazine, and The Boston Globe. Her articles have been featured in many state association publications, in Great Possibilities, and in School Nutrition, SNA’s flagship publication.

JoAnne lives in Jamestown, Ohio. She loves to travel. She winters on the Gulf of Mexico in southwest Florida and travels abroad each year. She has been called the “Rock Star Lunchlady”, and the “Funny Lunchlady.” The best part is that those who attend her sessions don’t just laugh, they always learn.

She is always happy to stop by a conference and share her enthusiasm and passion with others in the great field of school nutrition.

America’s Meal provides training and consulting for child nutrition programs.
