Look What’s Cooking AAA Hosts Adventist Food Service Association

Thirteen representatives from Adventist schools attended the annual Adventist Food Service Association Convention this summer at Auburn Adventist Academy.

Food service directors from academies and colleges nationwide had the opportunity to glean ideas and swap recipes.

The weeklong convention allowed participants to share and benefit from their collective experience. Directors were able to discuss the challenges that often arise in their departments as well as share creative solutions to those problems.

"The meetings went very well," said Janet Goltz, Auburn Academy's director of food service and this year's host. "I think everyone gained a lot from coming, and it was a great success!"

One highlight of the week was when vendors such as Food Service of America and U.S. Foods came and presented a mini food show in Auburn's cafeteria. On another day, each school prepared and displayed their favorite dish on a table decorated with their school colors. The group also had the chance to travel to Orcas Island, tour the area, and gain a greater glimpse of the beautiful Northwest.

Schools rotate hosting responsibilities. Chuck Allen and Blue Mountain Academy in Hamburg, Penn., will host next year's food service convention. The association has a website at www.afsanews.org where members have access to a recipe database, directory of members and online meal planning resources.

Auburn Adventist Academy salutes the talented individuals who make up the Adventist Food Service Association, provide dedicated service, and bring smiles to thousands of people up to three times a day.
