    This event is a "100% virtual" Child Nutrition foodservice "EXPO," featuring vendors that offer food, small-wares, equipment and software products and services to school districts participating in the School Nutrition programs. 

    This EXPO is a collaboration between 9 Texas-based Child Nutrition food purchasing cooperatives. This 3-day event will highlight multiple exhibitors not only showcasing their products but focusing on new menu ideas with the tried and true products and making it work in light of COVID.

    The EXPO Agenda is packed with "live" speaker sessions offered throughout each day with a focus on procurement, USDA Waivers and commodity foods, Texas Department of Agriculture updates, and more! Daily meetups and "chats" will be offered for those that want to engage with Industry Partners and colleagues.

    Join us for a unique and "first of its kind" event offered by Multi-Region Purchasing Cooperative, Region One South Texas Child Nutrition Coop, Region 5, Region 7, Region 8, Choice Partners, West Texas Food Service Cooperative, Texas 20 and Sodexo.
