What's New with School Nutrition

The School Nutrition Team (SNT) provides monthly updates in the form of webinars through Global Meet, a web conferencing technology. These sessions will also be recorded and archived for future 24/7 viewing.

  • To enter the live webinar, click the 'Join the Webinar' Link below
  • Fill in your name and email address and select 'Join Meeting'
  • You may enter a password to register or select “Continue as Guest” on the bottom right
  • Global Meet will ask you how you'd like to connect your audio
    • Option 1: 'Call My Phone' Type in your phone number and Global Meet will call you! After entering your phone number select 'Connect Me.' When your phone rings, pick up the call, and select '1' to join the call.

 

  • Option 2: 'Dial in'  Select 'Dial-in' directly below the orange 'Connect Me' button. Dial the participant call-in number: 1-877-820-7831 and enter the guest passcode 695499 when prompted. Please mute yourself by pressing *6.
  • Option 3: 'Call my Computer' If you have speakers on your computer, you can select this option and 'Connect Me.' This will enable you to listen through your computer speakers. You may need to plug earphones into your audio jack if you do not have stand alone speakers.  

An Adobe flash player warning will pop up asking for access to your camera and microphone.  Please sure to “Allow” if you wish you continue with Option 3. To listen through your computer speakers, plugging in earphones into your audio jack is required.
