The School Nutrition Association’s Internship Program is designed to provide interns with the training and opportunities necessary to pursue a district-level supervisory position in school nutrition. Whether you are a college student seeking hands-on experience or a seasoned school nutrition professional, SNA’s Internship Program connects you with opportunities to learn how school nutrition operations work.

  • Provide an environment in which interns can appreciate and perform the variety of tasks required for operating successful school foodservice programs.
  • Help interns communicate effectively in interactions with other professionals and stakeholders.
  • Provide interns the comprehensive experience to sit for the SNS Credentialing Exam.
