We are very excited to serve as the co-advisors for SNA’s new virtual event this fall, the Directors’ Best Practices Conference (October 26-28, 2020).

Join us to navigate this complex school year together, share ideas about what’s working and network with peers about where we may need some help. It might be the most challenging year in school nutrition, but you are not alone!

You don’t want to miss out on the latest school nutrition participation and trends data, best practice and idea sharing, financial sustainability discussion and ideas, and sanitation and HACCP planning specific to COVID-19 with Dr. Cyndie Story and Dr. Beverly Girard. You’ll also hear from a renowned pediatrician representing the American Academy of Pediatrics who will discuss the importance of school meals for student wellness. Check out the more detailed agenda and conference FAQs.

Plus, learn new ideas to engage with your communities and share more data on participation/financial challenges with your administration.

We’ll wrap up each day of the conference with Zoom room networking. While nothing replaces face-to-face communication, this is a fun way to catch up and connect!

We look forward to seeing you at the Directors’ Best Practices Conference.
