Best of SNIC19: Creative Ways to Engage Your School Community

Register for SNA's Webinar Wednesdays E-Learning Events

2:00 pm ET on Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Everyone knows that school nutrition success hinges on integration throughout the school community. But there can be a wide gap between knowing this and making it happen! Austin ISD, our “host” school district, offers a terrific model for leveraging relationships with teachers and administrators to develop a wide variety of engagement activities. From classroom demos to student chef competitions, kids regularly get a “taste” of school nutrition far beyond the cafeteria walls. As presented at #SNIC19, come let Austin’s innovations serve as your inspiration.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDNs/NDTRs.
