Article Submission Guidelines

We welcome article submissions for our quarterly member magazine, the TASNews. Please see below for some of the types of articles we look for. When considering a submission, please adhere to our deadline dates. News must be submitted electronically to [email protected].

Chapter News

Chapter news articles should include updates on chapter activities that your chapter has completed since the last submission, plans your chapter has for the future, recognition of chapter members who’ve made a contribution to your chapter activities, and any other news related to your chapter. Chapter News can also include recognition that your chapter has received from your district or the community.

Photos may be submitted in .jpg, .png, or .pdf formats and must be original files (please do not add photos to word documents as they will not print clearly). When multiple photos are submitted, printed photo sizes will decrease. If photos include children, check with your district administration to be sure that a release form is on file for each child pictured and send confirmation to [email protected].

District News

District news articles should include exciting programs and/or events that your district food service department has sponsored or participated in, recognition that your department has received from your district or community, and any bright ideas that your district has used that might help other districts around the state.
