SNA’s Spokesperson Network includes more than 60 school nutrition professionals working in media markets across the country. These volunteer spokespeople are available for media interviews and are excellent resources on school meal program operations, planning and related topics. SNA spokespeople can provide insight into local and national school meal trends for media stories. To schedule an interview, please contact SNA’s Director of Media Relations at (301) 686-3100.
