WSNA Holds Nutrition Conference in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Washington School Nutrition Association is in Yakima for their annual conference.

The WSNA is having their annual state conference at the Convention Center in Yakima and runs until Wednesday.

The goal is to educate people who work in elementary, middle and high schools about the best ways for food preparation, look over new school menus, and get training on nutritional requirements for school lunches.

Organizers said this is all an effort to get kids healthy for the upcoming school year.

"We are all working together to provide healthier meals for school kids.  We have very strict regulations to follow so that every student in the state of Washington is offered a healthy meal," said Conference Chair, Renee Miles.

This conference happens every year in cities around the state, the last time it was in Yakima was several years ago.

This year they expect a turnout of 500 people coming to the conference.  There will be an auction to raise money for training programs for school cooks.

The conference also touches on financial management of school nutrition and accommodating students with special diets.
