SNA Releases Their 2024 Position Paper – Check it Out

Did you hear? SNA has released its 2024 Position Paper outlining this year’s legislative priorities. 👏

Why it matters: SNA’s new School Nutrition Trends Report finds critical economic and regulatory challenges threaten the sustainability of school meal programs.

To ensure these programs remain viable to benefit students long-term, SNA’s 2024 Position Paper includes three crucial asks:

  • 💪 To combat financial threats, Congress must increase reimbursements by 40 cents per lunch and 15 cents per breakfast.
  • 🥪 To keep students eating healthy school meals, maintain current, successful school nutrition standards, rather than implementing additional rules.
  • 👍 To support student success, offer healthy meals for all students at no charge.

What’s next: School nutrition professionals from across the country will come to Washington, D.C. to SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (#LAC24) on March 3-5, 2024, and meet with their members of Congress to discuss the 2024 Position Paper. To learn more about #LAC24 or to register, click here.

Go deeper: The 2024 Position Paper was drafted by SNA’s Public Policy & Legislation Committee, capturing the input of SNA’s membership. Detailed fact sheets on each ask are available through the “Learn more” links in the Paper. Talking points and other member resources are coming soon!
