Where are the Nutrition Advisors? 


After providing two workshops on healthy snacking for the Kansas Enrichment Network on April 1 in Kansas City, Jill headed to DC for the School Nutrition Association's Legislative Action Conference. She will be joining Stephanie in San Diego from April 17-20 for the National CACFP Sponsors Association Annual Conference.

On April 12, Carol starts a two day tour of Texas! She will be providing training and professional development to food service staff from Corpus Christi, Sinton and Mission ISDs. Then she heads to the DC area for a couple of days on April 20, where she will train staff from DC, Fairfax County and Baltimore City Public School Districts.

April is a busy month for our team! The Nutrition Advisors, as well as their Physical Education & Activity and Policy counterparts will be hard at work reviewing applications for the Alliance's National Healthy Schools Awards!
