To help with implementation of the new standards, SNA has created several useful resources, available on our dedicated USDA Professional Standards webpage. Here, you will also find links to the USDA’s own resources, including the new USDA Training Tracking Tool and the Professional Standards Training Guidelines exclusively for SNA members and SNA state affiliates.

Take the Nebraska Alternative School Breakfast Challenge Today!

  • Grab and Go Breakfast
  • Breakfast in the Classroom
  • Second Chance Breakfast

Alternative breakfast programs increase student participation by meeting students where and when they want to eat breakfast. Students don’t have to choose between a few extra minutes of sleep, missing out on social time with classmates before school or fearing social stigmatization by getting a school breakfast. Plus, student athletes participating in before school athletics will have an opportunity to fuel up right after the bell.  Nebraska School Breakfast Challenge flyer 2015-2016 8.24.15 (2)
