SNA is Your Resource for Professional Standards

The final USDA Professional Standards rule for foodservice directors, managers, school nutrition staff and state agency directors is here and effective July 1, 2015. 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)

As a partner of the Nebraska School Activities Association, Midwest Dairy Council is excited to offer the opportunity for high school coaches/ athletic departments working together with their nutrition department to complete a grant application for transportable milk coolers for 8 ounce containers of chocolate milk to keep milk cold and accessible after practice, games, and events. Each cooler holds one crate of milk, which is typically 50 cartons.

Each school application is eligible for up to 4 coolers with a cart for their school. The school and athletic department receiving the cooler is responsible for purchasing chocolate milk to fill the cooler. Please work with your school nutrition director on the process you will use for ordering milk and billing the athletic program.
