Emergency Feeding Success Stories and Best Practices

Since 2020, “emergency feeding” has taken on a whole new meaning. And while change is inevitable, one thing that hasn’t changed is community members’ continued reliance on the support and quick response of their school nutrition programs during a crisis. Whether it’s the pandemic or a natural disaster, school foodservice professionals need to be prepared, year-round, to tackle the challenges.  Join this pre-conference workshop to hear what state agency officials are doing now to plan for these types of events and share lessons from your own experiences with your colleagues.  This session will feature a panel with robust engagement from the audience. So come prepared to share your stories.  Plus, as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, you’ll leave this session with the necessary tools to create your own emergency plan. 

Fee:  $129 per person
