What is the School Wellness Summer Symposium?

SNAP-Ed New York’s School Wellness Summer Symposium is a dynamic event planned to be held on August 9 - 11, 2022 and designed to bring together (virtually) school staff and administration from across NY to inspire, educate and engage. Through live virtual activities, participants will gain knowledge, skills and abilities to start, strengthen and/or expand school wellness efforts for staff, students and families.


  • Inspire our schools to act and build communities where food and movement matter
  • Educate participants on the connection between food, movement, resilience, and readiness to learn or teach
  • Engage meaningful discussions around nutrition education, physical activity, and the whole child
  • Apply skills and knowledge gained to enhance the quality of programming and students readiness to learn
