Find Creative Solutions to SN Purchasing with Webinar Wednesdays!

SNA Webinar Wednesdays

Are profits tight, or non-existent in your district? Is there anything you can do to turn the tide?

On May 15, we will show you how six districts banded together to improve vendor procurement and profits for their hard-working districts. The new Massachusetts School Buying Group completed their first year of bidding together and have learned lessons on the way. They are here to answer your buying group questions and help you think differently about your current procurement processes.

Then, join us on May 22 for a webinar on utilizing farm to school programming in your district. In 2015, 36% of schools were buying food locally, and in 2019, it’s 42%. The needle is moving, but the National Farm to School Network recognizes there are hurdles for many districts in buying locally, and two representatives from the organization will discuss jumping these hurdles creatively, to ultimately benefit our students and the community.
