legislation & policy

SNACT plays a leading role in advocating for Connecticut’s school nutrition programs at the State and Federal level. We have built strong collaborative relationships with other child nutrition organizations in CT and nationally. 

SNACT also works to keep members up to date on changes in Federal and State programs. We help our members understand more about the legislation and policies that shape and impact child nutrition programs and the role that they can play in the process.
