State agencies are integral partners in the success of school-based nutrition programs. State agencies serve as the administrators and lead authority of the school nutrition programs at the state level. These individuals are employed by the Department of Education or Department of Agriculture.

For more information on the activities of your state agency or to learn more about a particular state agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has a list of state agencies available on its website.
