SNA Welcomes Confirmation of USDA Secretary Perdue
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD – The non-profit School Nutrition Association (SNA), representing 57,000 school nutrition professionals nationwide, welcomed the confirmation of former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue as Secretary of the US Department of Agriculture.
“School Nutrition Association looks forward to working with Secretary Perdue to find ways to strengthen school meal programs, which support the success of more than 30 million students each school day,” said SNA President Becky Domokos-Bays, PhD, RD, SNS. “We hope Secretary Perdue will be a champion for these programs, which have ensured students have access to healthy meals at school for more than 70 years.”
More than 900 school nutrition professionals participated in SNA’s Legislative Action Conference and Charge to the Hill earlier this month to advocate on behalf of school meals and students. SNA has called for protecting school meal programs from block grant proposals, expanding USDA Foods to support the School Breakfast Program and granting practical flexibility under federal regulations for school menu planners.
