NSLW may be over, but SNA provides many resources to help you keep the excitement alive and continue to promote your healthy changes to students, parents and the community.

New PR Resources – toolkit, videos, talking points, activity sheets, handouts and more. This page has everything you need to spread the word that school meals are healthy and delicious.

Tray Talk – use this page to share your success stories, and even your recipes! You can also direct parents here to help them get more information about school meals.
