Yesterday was the first day of ANC 2012 in Denver, and what a day it was! Here at School Nutrition Foundation we started the day off meeting new people and hearing their breakfast stories at the SNF booth. You can find us directly across from the Merchandise Emporium near the entrance of the Colorado Convention Center.
During the lunchtime hours we were in small group listening sessions with directors and managers. The listening sessions were co-sponsored by School Nutrition Foundation, and our friends at the National Dairy Council. The discussions were focused on the upcoming meal pattern implementation timelines; topics discussed ranged from equipment to accountability, from participation and marketing to stakeholder engagement. We have one more listening session today, and a blog on the topics discussed in all three sessions will be coming up in the next couple of weeks.
Yesterday ended with an inspiring, high-energy opening General Session that included a wonderful speech by fitness expert Denise Austin. She got us all out of our seats and moving, and inspired us all to keep moving just a little more, every day.
We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones as ANC 2012 continues–please stop by our booth, say hello, and share your school breakfast story with the School Nutrition Foundation and Beyond Breakfast.
Are you doing school breakfast, or are you interested in starting breakfast at your school? Join us this afternoon at 3:30 p.m. in the Mile High Ballroom (3A) for our Breakfast in the Classroom panel. Hope to see you there!
