Adam Russo is the Director of the award-winning Office of School Food and Nutrition Services for Prince William County Public Schools in Northern Virginia.

Adam transitioned from owning and operating restaurants to school nutrition 7 years ago. He believes in bringing the same exceptional guest experience, quality and scratch cookery to school kitchens that were so successful in private enterprise. Each year, Adam spends time in all 101 schools and centers, tweaking processes to further increase efficiency and excellence, while highlighting the efforts of the Department’s 1,000 employees. Over the past three years, the program’s streamlined operations have caught the eye of experts around the country, who have featured Adam in several publications, most recently Foodservice Director Magazine’s Operation of the Year. He says the only thing better than serving nutritious food to the future, is being the cheerleader for the Department and bragging about the people who do all the hard work.
