2018 SNAL Annual State Conference  - Event Schedule

2018 SNAL Annual State Conference Event Schedule

The School Nutrition Association of Louisiana’s Conference Planning Committee has been diligently planning education sessions, hands on training and socials events in order to make this an exciting and memorable 65th Annual Conference.

We are extending a special invitation for you to join the members of the School Nutrition Association of Louisiana in the celebration of “School Nutrition - The Adventure Can Take You Anywhere”.  Supervisors, Directors, Purchasing Agents, Managers and Technicians from across the state will meet in Monroe, June 26, 27, and 28th at the Monroe Civic Center (MCC) located in downtown Monroe on the 401 Lea Joyner Memorial Expressway.

The SNAL Conference Committee has planned an array of activities that promise to enhance and educate everyone with a way to provide healthy nutritious meals to students and faculty.

We Appreciate Our Corporate Sponsors

SNAL would like to thank all of our loyal participants for their continued support. We would not be able to offer training programs and services if it were not from your support.  If you have not exhibited with us before, we would like to extend an invitation to join us in Monroe.  An audience of dedicated child nutrition personnel will be in attendance to learn how your products can help create a safe, healthy and nutritious environment for the children of Louisiana.  Through your products and resources, we look forward to you educating us on new ways to enhance our programs by providing healthy and delicious meals that will keep the students coming back for more!
