Research of the 2018 Smarter Lunchrooms Symposium

2018 Smarter Lunchrooms Symposium

The Smarter Lunchrooms Movement National Office is excited to share another resource set from this year’s Smarter Lunchrooms Symposium! This year’s program featured an entire day devoted to showcasing current research related to Smarter Lunchrooms strategies, both in the USA and abroad. Dr. David Just and Dr. Gnel Gabrielyan from the Cornell B.E.N. Center were joined by guest researchers from Georgia, Montana, and Florida. They shared slide presentations of their work and participated in a panel wherein they answered participants’ questions and discussed future research possibilities in the field. The day also included a poster session and the Free Resources Fair, which is now online!

The research showcase content is now also online at The slide presentations were recorded and subtitles were added. The slides (in PDF form) and video (in VOD form, video on demand) are ready to view. They are followed by the posters of the poster session (in PDF form).
