We are an association of School Food Service (SFS) and Nutrition professionals -- employees, managers, supervisors, directors, and educators -- who work towards promoting the optimal health, nutrition, and education of all children. We support nutritionally adequate and educationally sound, financially accountable, nonprofit child nutrition and school community nutrition programs.
We support you.
What's in it for you?
Training and professional development, networking, leadership opportunities, legislative support, scholarships and grants, awards...we could list them all, but don't take our word for it. Listen to what other members have to say.
