Hot Topic Added to SNA ANC Education Session Lineup

The School Nutrition Association’s 2010 Annual National Conference (ANC), July 9-14, 2010 in Dallas, TX, is the place you will connect face to face with thousands of school nutrition operators from districts across the nation.

ANC is the largest and most important gathering for the K-12 school nutrition profession. Nowhere else will you find more than 80 quality education sessions, guaranteed to provide you with new perspectives and best practices. And whether you seek new products to boost participation, equipment to streamline production or materials to expand your summer service, you’re certain to round up what you need in the Exhibit Hall.
It’s time to saddle up for a Texas-sized experience at ANC 2010. After four learning-packed and networking-filled days, you will take home the best thinking in school nutrition!

Are you interested in learning more about First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Chef’s Move to Schools” initiative? Well, then you won't want to miss the newly added ANC education session, “Chef’s Move.” During this session, White House Assistant Chef and the Food Initiative Coordinator Sam Kass, as well as Executive Chef Brad Trudeau from Dallas (Texas) Independent School District, Chef Tony Geraci from Baltimore City (Md.) Public Schools and Chef Timothy Cipriano for New Haven (Conn.) Public Schools will provide an overview of this brand-new initiative and explain how participating in this program can benefit your school. The program is administered by USDA and allows chefs nationwide the opportunity to share their expertise—from developing menus that meet federal dietary standards within budget to educating children about healthy food choices—with schools interested in benefitting from that expertise. Chefs and schools interested in participating can learn more by visiting and clicking on the “Chefs Move to Schools” button.

The "Chef's Move" session is scheduled for Sunday, July 11 at 12:00pm. This “Hot Topic” session was a last-minute addition to the ANC 2010 education session lineup and therefore is not included in the onsite ANC Program Guide. Please be sure to pick up your program and accompanying addendum at Registration for session times and room numbers. The addendum is also packed with exhibitor updates, so you’ll want to have that handy as well when walking the floor of the Exhibit Hall.
