SNA Hosts Listening Session with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue

Monday, July 17, 2017   (0 Comments)

Yesterday, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue spoke to attendees during the Closing General Session of SNA’s 2017 Annual National Conference (ANC) in Atlanta. His visit was highly anticipated, as this is the first time in over 20 years that a Secretary of Agriculture has addressed an ANC audience. 

Secretary Perdue addressed the crowd during ANC’s Closing General Session, taking the opportunity to recognize the many contributions of school nutrition professionals to students’ academic achievement (scroll down for video of the speech). He also joined in a listening session with SNA leaders - school nutrition professionals elected to represent the broad range of meal programs across the country. The event allowed Secretary Perdue to hear first-hand about successes and challenges encountered by those working on the frontlines to improve menus for students while meeting updated nutrition standards for meals and snacks.
