Education Appropriations State Agency Budget Presentation and Public Hearings are scheduled for the same day as Child Nutrition Advocacy Day! The timing couldn't be better for us to keep the child nutrition programs strong. Register for this free event today and join us for this exciting day of advocacy as we experience live updates during the best time for us to amplify our voices in solidarity!
The School Nutrition Association of CT (SNACT), End Hunger Connecticut!, the Connecticut Association of School Business Officials (CASBO), The Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (CAND), and FoodCorps Connecticut invite you to join us for a networking breakfast and special training on meaningful communication with legislators. Come learn how to engage and equip our leaders to support our programs.
Did you know? It’s been seven years since the last Child Nutrition Legislative Action Day.
Did you know? The 2019 Connecticut General Assembly has the largest freshman class of legislators in Connecticut history - 22% or 41 of our 187 elected legislators are first timers!
It’s time to educate our elected officials, new and seasoned, about the importance and impact of child nutrition programs!
