About KSNA

The Kentucky School Nutrition Association is a vibrant association with a membership of over 2,000 Kentucky school nutrition professionals.  KSNA members include school nutrition staff and managers, district level staff which include supervisors, office personnel, district directors and state agency staff and directors from the Kentucky Departments of Agriculture and Education.  We are also fortunate to have great support from Industry Partners who work with us to provide services, training, and education to our members.

Detailed nutrition standards, strict food-safety requirements along with complex regulations, limited budgets, special dietary restrictions make every day a challenge for school nutrition professionals.  Administering and operating school meal programs require skills and knowledge in many areas. KSNA provides learning opportunities at several meetings such as Managers Retreat, Administrators Summit and the Annual Conference throughout the year. Programs like the School Nutrition Association's Certificate Program as well as their Credentialing Program also help members improve and grow.  To learn more about SNA's professional development, visit  https://schoolnutrition.org/

More Than Just Lunch

One in five, or 15 million, children in America live in households without consistent access to adequate food availability.  School meals provide a critical safety net for children who face this challenge.  Scientific research links school meals and healthy diets to academic success which had led to the expansion of breakfast programs, summer feeding programs, and after-school meal programs.
