The Advisory Council for School Nutrition (ACSN) informs and advises the Colorado Department of Education School Nutrition Unit on the development and implementation of Child Nutrition Programs and serves as a resource for school food authorities (SFAs) within specific regions.

ACSN members are food service directors, supervisors, managers, or assistant directors. They serve a critical role in improving the work of SFAs by providing input, sharing best practices, engaging in peer-to-peer learning and support, and collaborating with numerous partners and stakeholders of school nutrition.
