The Georgia Department of Education School Nutrition Program and the Georgia School Nutrition Association invite you to take part in two great professional opportunities in Athens.

We are encouraging all school nutrition personnel to join GaDOE and GSNA to get "Equipped" with knowledge on the current trends and offerings in commodities for Georgia and on best practices and purchasing tips in school nutrition at the GSNA 2018 Commodity Reprocessing On Parade (C.R.O.P.) Show. This is an opportunity to get the latest information on procurement and bidding in Georgia and to view and sample the products offered by Georgia processors.

The “Best Practices & Practical Tips from School Service Purchasing Industry Leaders” session and the C.R.O.P. Show are held in conjunction with the GaDoe School Nutrition Directors' Conference (October 24th -26th held at the Georgia Continuing Education Center at UGA). Representatives from USDA and the Georgia State Department of School Nutrition will help you with the ins and outs of purchasing in Georgia.
