Iowa School Nutrition Professionals Lobby Congress in Support of School Meals


February 26, 2019 – Last week, eight school nutrition professionals from across Iowa traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in School Nutrition Association’s (SNA) 47th annual Legislative Action Conference (LAC). During the conference (February 24-26), they joined 900 of their peers from across the country in urging Congress to minimize regulatory burdens and bolster school meal programs to benefit the nearly 30 million students served each day.

LAC’s “Charge to the Hill” allowed Iowa participants to meet with their members of Congress to discuss SNA’s 2019 Position Paper and the importance of school meals to student achievement.


“Every school day, 377,927 children across Iowa depend on school meals to nourish their bodies and minds,” said SNA Iowa President Cathy Coklin. “We told our local representatives about the healthy changes in Iowa’s cafeterias, and how we need their help to sustain this progress. Congress must support school meal programs and streamline burdensome regulatory requirements, so school nutrition professionals can focus on their mission of serving students.”
