Learn the Nuances of Procurement at ANC


Procurement continues to be a major training need for school nutrition teams and SNA is here to help! From utilizing data to forecast purchasing needs to buying American-made products, procurement-related education sessions at the Annual National Conference can help a school nutrition department thrive.

Procurement is just one of many topics that will be discussed at education sessions during SNA’s Annual National Conference in Las Vegas, happening in July. Procurement-centered education sessions will cover topics like purchasing American-made products, forecasting, sourcing local and the power of collaborative purchasing.
