LEAD Summit Update: 

After careful consultation with the FSNA Executive Board regarding the health and safety of everyone in our industry, we have made the difficult decision to cancel FSNA’s LEAD Summit event scheduled for April 15-16, 2020 at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes. 

FDACS has also made the decision to cancel their directors meeting that was scheduled to immediately precede LEAD Summit. Visit the FDACS website for more information on this cancellation. 

FSNA is looking to reschedule the event in hopes that all parties are willing and able to still participate. All payments for the April dates will be honored in the event LEAD Summit does get rescheduled. It is for this reason that we discourage requesting refunds at this time. The rescheduled dates should be confirmed in the upcoming weeks.

You are responsible for cancelling your hotel reservations as they are in your name. If you booked a room at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes, you can call the following number to cancel your reservation: 
(407) 206-2300
We will continue to provide updates as decisions are made. 

FSNA appreciates your patience and ongoing support as we decide the best and safest way to move forward.


Our Mission

To advance child nutrition programs that promote wellness and academic success,
while promoting leadership development opportunities to members.

We are school nutrition employees, managers, directors, registered dietitians, nutritionists, and industry members in Florida united by our mission that all students have access to healthy, good tasting, fresh and affordable school meals.

Stepping up to the plate

In times of crisis, it is clear to see who society’s most essential personnel are. The extraordinary work of School Nutrition Professionals, both on the front lines and back at the district offices, should not go unnoticed. As we all know, some kids depend on school food, and would be left vulnerable if it weren’t for the quick and efficient response of School Nutrition Professionals. Thank you for harnessing the courage to stand up in the face of uncertainty, and for continuing your dedication to school food nutrition and the mission we represent.
