The School Nutrition Association (SNA) is a national, nonprofit professional organization representing more than 55,000 members who provide high-quality, low-cost meals to students across the country. Recognized as the authority on school nutrition, SNA has been advancing the availability, quality and acceptance of school nutrition programs as an integral part of education since 1946. In 2014, they raised the bar by introducing the Keys to Excellence Program – a tool designed to assist schools in achieving nutrition integrity goals at the administrative, management, and operational levels. Built by Dynamic Benchmarking, the Keys to Excellence Program is a state of the art self-assessment tool that allows members to compare their school nutrition program’s performance with other districts in their own area and around the country. The program’s four key areas are based on the standards of practice for nutrition integrity including operations, nutrition, nutrition education, physical activity, administration, marketing and communications.
