FSNA's 43rd Annual Legislative Action Caucus
February 24-25, 2020

FSNA’s 43rd annual Legislative Action Caucus was held at the serene Goodwood Museum & Gardens in Tallahassee, FL. Out of the 77 attendees, we welcomed 25 first timers! Region V paved the way with its 16 attendees, closely followed by Region IV with 15! The day kicked off with Dr. Norin Dollard’s engaging and informative presentation on Florida Kids Count and the importance of the US Census. Thank you, Dr. Dollard, for reminding school nutrition professionals why what they do is so important! To access all educational content from LAC, including info from Dr. Norin Dollard, click here!

On Day 2, Legislators, their staff, the Governor’s staff, and a few Capitol visitors enjoyed the School Breakfast on the top floor of the Capitol. Leon County School Nutrition Superstars Marsha Nelson and Amy Hayden coordinated the prep and delivery of the full course buffet. LAC attendees were ready to educate everyone on the floor about FSNA and the significance of the programs it supports. During their legislative appointments, attendees were successful in expressing the importance of school nutrition — Region II even convinced Representative Ramon Alexander to volunteer to help serve a school lunch! Representatives and Senators had the chance to hear all about the work that school nutrition professionals do and the most pressing legislative issues concerning the industry. Check out what ABC Channel 27 had to say about our event!
