Make a difference. One voice at a time! Join your fellow school fellow school nutrition colleagues in the nation’s capital for a unique opportunity to shape and define national policy relating to school nutrition. SNA’s 43rd Legislative Action Conference (LAC) will take place March 1-4, 2015, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The LAC program highlights will include the opportunity to learn from Washington insiders and hear from Members of Congress and representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on the issues that matter most to children’s nutrition.
