From Chef Laura

I hope this article finds everyone well rested from their Christmas vacation and activities as we head into the new year. I continue to feel so very blessed and grateful to each one of the MSNA members for allowing me to serve you as your President. As we gear up for the final half of the schoolyear, please know that MSNA is working toward the future for the members of MSNA. As we continue to work towards the future of MSNA and SNA we have introduced new resources from SNA, MDE Office of Child Nutrition, and ICN. We are also introducing new op-portunities for our members and growing in a positive manner to bring new members into MSNA.

MSNA’s priority is to create a learning environment for members so that
they may be able to enhance their programs across the state. I hope that all members will join me in look-ing toward the future of the association and help to usher a positive mindset into the future of MSNA I would like to thank everyone who had a part in making the 50th anniversary conference such a success. I hope that everyone will join us on April 3rd in Hattiesburg for the Nutrition Education Seminar and what will be a great day to continue our education in the field of Child Nutrition. Remember that we may be the unsung HEROES, but nevertheless, we are HEROES to the students of the state of Mississippi. I am grateful for each of you and what you do for the students of Mississippi.
