SNA Wants Member Feedback on Proposed Rule on Professional Standards

February 5, 2014 – On February 4, 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released proposed regulations on professional standards for all school nutrition employees.

The School Nutrition Association (SNA), representing 55,000 school nutrition professionals working in school cafeterias nationwide, has already mobilized a representative task force of SNA members to review the details of the proposed rule. The task force will assess the impact of the rule on school nutrition professionals and school meal programs, as well as gather extensive input from SNA members and craft SNA’s official comments in response to the rule.

USDA’s announcement can be found at this link. The proposed rule can be found here. SNA encourages members to review the rule and provide any comments, encouraging or critical in the comment field below. Final comments on the rule will be due on April 7, 2014.

Barnes & Thornburg LLP has provided an executive summary to the rule. Please click here to review their summary.
