Keys to Excellence: New Logo & Updated Best Practices


SNA's Keys to Excellence logo

Check out SNA's new Keys to Excellence logo and updated best practices. Keys to Excellence is designed to assist schools in achieving nutrition integrity goals at the administrative, management, and operational levels. The four key areas of Keys to Excellence are the basis for USDA Professional Standards. The updated best practices document defines national standards for quality programs and provides a framework for continuous program review, evaluation, and improvement. The best practices were recently updated by SNA’s Professional Development and Nutrition & Research Committee members.

If your school or state uses or promotes the Keys to Excellence program, please download the new logo and update any documentation with the new logo.
