Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes

The 2018 Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes will be held on Monday, March 5, 2018, at the J.W. Marriott in Washington, D.C. The event, held during SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC), will be the 5th anniversary of the annual event that recognizes the extraordinary men and women in the school nutrition profession who make a difference in the lives of school children and go beyond their daily responsibilities in making a significant contribution to their communities. The Celebration is the only fundraising event that the School Nutrition Foundation holds and the evening is essential to securing funding for the scholarships that the Foundation provides to SNA members annually.
