School Nutrition Magazine Distribution Changes


SN-magazine-logo Arlington, VA - In response to publishing and content consumption trends, School Nutrition Magazine will reduce the number of print issues to focus more on its digital transformation.

After careful analysis, SNA leadership has made the decision to reduce the number of print issues per year and change the distribution list for School Nutrition Magazine. To align with SNA's new strategic plan, the association will be focusing its efforts on becoming a digital-first organization and this decision is a significant step in this direction. 

Starting this month (August 2021) and in September, the print issue of SN magazine will have its distribution reduced. However, the magazine's digital version will still be available to all members on the SNA website. The October issue will be digital only (no print version) and the November/December issue of 2021 will be a combined print magazine that will hit mailboxes in late November. It will also be available digitally on SNA's website for all members. In addition to our digital magazine, which debuted in 2020, SNA’s digital professional development programs have grown significantly, and more and more members are taking advantage of these high-quality professional development opportunities that are free to SNA members.  

“Over the last 18 months, we learned that we need to remain flexible and future-focused.  That's why we continue to come up with creative solutions to share content and give our members the information they need when they need it. With the launch of new digital products, we are aiming to enhance our member experience and keep our members in the know about what’s going on in the school nutrition industry,” said SNA CEO Patricia Montague. Over the last few months, SNA has successfully launched Side Dish, SN Plus, and debuted Partners for Progress and Sponsored Recipe as features in the magazine. Readers will see even more exciting opportunities soon. “If there is one thing that remains unchanged, it is our steadfast commitment to serving our members. We hope that they will continue to enjoy our award-winning magazine in its print or digital versions, and we welcome their thoughts and feedback,” said SNA President Beth Wallace.
