2024 School Nutrition Association Show Preview: Find a Way at SNA!

Every July, the School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference brings thousands of child nutrition professionals, industry partners, and suppliers together for a networking and educational event that is second to none. 

This year’s conference will be held in historic Boston July 14-16, and it presents an inspiring theme for the future of child nutrition: Shaping Tomorrow Together.

The conference will address hot topics such as keeping up with changing nutrition standards, embracing emerging menu and food prep trends, and marketing your program to your students and community. 

The exhibit floor provides countless opportunities to get hands-on with tools to help your child nutrition program thrive, with everything from simple, essential prep tools to great-looking and flexible serving lines.
