Legislative Action Caucus

February 1-2, 2021 - Tallahassee, FL

Education Sessions will take place in the Carriage House at Goodwood Museum & Gardens
1600 Miccosukee Road, Tallahassee, FL 32308

The LAC program will once again be held at the beautiful Goodwood Museum & Gardens in Tallahassee. This year’s agenda will include riveting presentations from Florida’s insiders and agency leaders. Scheduled during Committee Weeks, the 44th FSNA LAC is your best opportunity to meet face-to-face with policymakers to increase their understanding of the complexity of school nutrition operations. 

Back again is the very successful School Breakfast at the Capitol. We will be serving up an authentic, delicious and nutritious school breakfast for Florida’s Legislators and their staff on the top floor of the Capitol. LAC attendees will be present to educate the visitors on the nutrient quality of food and the value of the breakfast program.
