SNA PAC: Political Action Committee Each year, the School Nutrition Association Political Action Committee (PAC) makes contributions to support members of Congress who have shown leadership in fighting for the health of children. The SNA Executive Board founded the PAC on the heels of the 1981 federal budget crisis that resulted in deep cuts in federal child nutrition program budgets. The goals behind the creation of the PAC still hold true today: To educate members of Congress about the child nutrition programs To thank the members who continue to support the programs year after year PPL Chair Wendy Weyer shares podium with Sen.
