2022 School Nutrition Annual National Conference Preview

Over the past two years, the school foodservice community has been tested daily and proven it’s resiliency and flexibility at every turn. It’s time to get together and celebrate!

The 2022 School Nutritional Association Annual National Conference starts this Sunday in Orlando. The first in-person SNA ANC since 2019, this year’s event will host 300+ exhibitors showcasing culinary trends, service solutions, and cutting-edge equipment.
