March 25, 2020

All COVID-19 related webinars are available to both members and non-members.

During these unprecedented times, experts recommend social distancing. However, there has never been a more important time to leverage social media and other communication channels. Consistent, factual and – whenever possible – positive messaging about your program is absolutely critical when school meals are being served during school closures.

Join SNA President Gay Anderson and the “Tips for School Meals that Rock” team of Dayle Hayes and Jeanne Reilly to learn how you can communicate most effectively in this rapidly changing environment. These leaders will discuss how to address the many questions about school meals you are receiving from the community and how to promote the availability of school meals. You will walk away with practical ideas and resources from districts across the country.
