SNA Releases 2014 Position Paper
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD (January 15, 2014) – The School Nutrition Association (SNA), a national non-profit representing 55,000 school nutrition professionals, has released its 2014 Position Paper, which outlines the Association’s advocacy efforts.
The 2014 Position Paper, which cites recent decreases in school lunch participation and increases to the cost of operating child nutrition programs, calls on Congress to provide additional flexibility in the operation of school meal programs to help ensure the overall sustainability of the programs.
The 2014 Position Paper will be the focus of SNA’s 42nd annual Legislative Action Conference (LAC), which runs from March 2-5, 2014, in Washington, D.C. Approximately 1,000 school nutrition professionals from across the nation will descend on Capitol Hill as part of LAC’s “Charge to the Hill,” allowing SNA members to meet with their representatives to discuss school nutrition issues.
