SNA-SNF Responds to Hurricane Devastation

2017-08-31

“We know we speak for everyone on the SNA and SNF Boards—and, indeed, our national membership—that our hearts ache for all those in Texas and Louisiana who have been so terribly devastated by the floods and ravages of this week’s hurricane. The images shared in the news and on social media are beyond imagination,” said SNA President Lynn Harvey, EdD, RD, SNS, and SNF Board Chair Sandra Ford, SNS, in a joint statement.

“While we feel especially concerned for our SNA members in these states—and the children they all serve—we believe that they are best supported by relief organizations that stand ready to serve with local, on-the-ground infrastructure to assess needs and allocate resources.

“We encourage you to give what you can to an established disaster-relief organization and have listed the website information for several of these below the photo. As we learn of any new relief opportunities that may serve schools and/or school nutrition professionals directly, we will provide updated information.” SNA will be making its own contribution to relief efforts.

National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster is an association of such organizations, and it offers a list of Texas partner members.
