Give me a “T,” Give me an “E,” Give me an “A” and “M”—what’s that spell?! A whole lot of fun and excitement! Come join SNA, industry partners, your friends and colleagues for the first-ever School Nutrition Pep Rally on Monday, July 12, 9:30-10:00 am, in Lobby D of the Dallas Convention Center. This high-energy event will mark the grand opening of the ANC 2010 Exhibit Hall, as well as pay special tribute to the “TEAM” of SNA Patrons for all they do for the Association and school nutrition programs nationwide. Be sure to give three cheers for your SNA President Dora Rivas, as she’s joined by members of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleading squad and a well-known NFL player, who will help to lead the parade to the Exhibit Hall. So, what are you waiting for?! Get your whole group together, rah-rah attitude in tow, and come celebrate the camaraderie and spirit of the school nutrition profession!
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 www.letsmove.gov 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.
