Inviting your legislator for a behind-the-scenes look at your school nutrition program could make all the difference in preserving funding and flexibilities, and supporting program expansion. The 2020 election year is around the corner and your legislators are looking for opportunities to engage with their communities during their campaigns. A cafeteria site-visit is a win-win for all. Where do you start? Join a panel of experienced school nutrition advocates to get the scoop on the process. We’ll wrap up with a peek at the updated SNA Cafeteria Site Visit Toolkit, your guidebook providing step-by-step instructions.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDNs/NDTRs.

  1. Learn what to expect when you’re expecting (a visit).
  2. Prepare stakeholders and provide persuasive arguments.
  3. Discover how to take the fear out of visits, clear hurdles, and follow up for a successful experience.
