Utica Community Schools has Michigan’s school food service top chef!

Mandy Sosnowski, the Director of Food and Nutrition Services for UCS, has earned the 2017 Director of the Year Award from the School Nutrition Association of Michigan (SNAM).

The award recognizes Sosnowski’s advocacy for child nutrition and commitment to provide all children access to healthy food options.

“Mrs. Sosnowski is a well-respected leader who understands the direct impact that healthy eating habits have on a student’s well-being and learning,” superintendent Dr. Christine Johns said.

Sosnowski has more than 20 years in the food service industry, including ten years with K-12 school districts. She was appointed to the Utica Community Schools position in July after previously serving in Fraser Public Schools and Bloomfield Hills Schools.

Sosnowski received her award October 22 at SNAM’s annual conference. In addition to her work to promote nutrition, Sosnowski was also recognized for her legislative work on behalf of school food service programs.

“Mandy is a huge advocate for child nutrition and has demonstrated this passion with her tireless efforts to ensure all children have access to healthy, flavorful food,” said Scott Little, associate executive director of SNAM.

Previously, Sosnowski was honored in the private sector for her work to promote customer service and marketing.
