Spring 2019 Industry Boot Camp Testimonial
“Even with a few years foodservice experience, SNA Bootcamp helped to confirm that no matter how long one has been in the industry, you’re never done learning. Bootcamp helped build upon my limited knowledge of the K12 industry, by providing amazing moderators who helped relate the partnership between industry and our customers. Come with questions and walk away with answers. It was worth the price of admission.”

Spring 2019 Industry Boot Camp Testimonial
“From the venue to the value, the SNA Boot Camp focuses on the school foodservice segment and is a great investment in yourself or colleague. Learning more about the school foodservice segment from industry pros is very rewarding; for me, invaluable. I highly recommend this two-day seminar which will arm you with a solid foundation. Topics include: school meal program basics, USDA regulations, menu planning, offer versus serve, reimbursement rates, trends in school feeding, procurement ethics, and more. Spring or Fall, any season is in-season to sharpen your school foodservice segment knowledge!”
