SNA Sends Letter to DIRECTV


In the recent Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, DIRECTV sponsored a collection of printed ads with one portraying school nutrition professionals in a negative light. In response, SNA CEO Patricia Montague, CAE, sent a letter to the company stating our concerns with the unfair representation and highlighting the important work of our members. “In addition to serving breakfast, lunch, and often supper, our members are instrumental in reducing hunger throughout their communities by opening food pantries, holding cooking classes for students and parents, providing backpacks filled with meals to help students through the weekends, and providing meals throughout the summer months,” said Montague.
