As your school or school district prepares for the upcoming school year, join the School Nutrition Association and the Food Research & Action Center for an interactive webinar on getting your community eligibility questions answered. Ask our panel of experts about grouping, operating at low ISPs, partial district implementation, getting buy-in from different stakeholders, and more.

This will be in a Zoom Meeting format which will allow the audience to use mics and cameras if they choose to engage with the panelists!

Submit your questions in advance here! You can also submit your questions during the webinar.
