November 19, 2012 – The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) is proud to announce that it has reached another milestone along its fundraising goal for the Josephine Martin Endowment Fund. As of November 15, 2012, SNF has passed the $15,000 mark, having raised $16,630 toward the goal of $75,000.

The Josephine Martin Endowment Fund serves as a fitting tribute to Dr. Martin’s passion for child nutrition and ensures that the voices of child nutrition professionals will continue to be heard by legislators and policy makers at the local, state and national levels. An additional aim of this Fund is to provide an SNA member the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C., for the School Nutrition Association’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC) for the first time, to carry on Dr. Martin’s living legacy.
