School Nutrition Association Annual National Conference

Spotlight On School Nutrition

Keeping kids happy, healthy and motivated through effective school nutrition programs—that’s the focus of the School Nutrition Association’s 73rd Annual National Conference in St. Louis, Missouri July 14-16, 2019. 

The mission of the School Nutrition Association (SNA) is to advance the quality of school meal programs through education and advocacy. This national organization of school nutrition professionals is committed to continuous improvement and enhancement of these programs to better serve the needs of students. 

Keeping Cafeteria Workers Safe

Keeping cafeteria workers safe as they prepare nutritious meals for students is a priority for schools, too. Every food service operation should have a slip-resistant safety footwear program to help reduce slips and falls on the job. That’s why companies like Shoes For Crews are proud participants in the School Nutrition Association conference year after year. 

Research continues to support the SNA’s assertion that school nutrition programs are an important key to educational success as well as overall wellness. Healthy eating becomes a lifelong habit among students touched by these initiatives. By providing valuable resources to school nutrition professionals, including information that provides a better understanding of school nutrition’s benefits, the SNA helps expand community awareness and feed more children.
