Welcome to SNA Iowa!

Our annual Legislative Breakfast is a fantastic opportunity to visit with our state legislators and share with them the importance of our role in the education of our children.  This year's breakfast will be held the day after our Directors & Supervisors meeting, so it is a perfect opportunity to stay the night after the meeting and join us at the Iowa State Capitol.

Calendar of Events

Our annual Legislative Breakfast at the Capital is Tuesday, February 25th.  Please consider joining us to share just how important school food and nutrition is in the lives of our children.
