Share Your Comments on Meal Pattern Implementation Progress

September 17, 2012 – As school districts across the nation work to meet the new meal pattern requirements, SNA is creating a new forum for school nutrition professionals to discuss implementation of the new standards, celebrate successes and share ideas for overcoming challenges. SNA is inviting members to post comments below. Tell us what is working in your cafeterias, which changes are a more difficult sell, any feedback you’ve received from students or parents, and your successful tips for smoothing the transition. Learn from your colleagues, benefit from positive ideas from other parts of the country, and share your experience.

SNA will follow the conversation as we continue to collect comments and feedback from members to share with our colleagues at USDA. And don’t forget to visit for SNA’s meal pattern implementation tools. We continue to update this site with the latest news and resources from SNA and USDA to help you understand and meet the new requirements.
