Today is the day! Happy Giving Tuesday!


It’s the day that individuals can make a big impact on the School Nutrition Foundation and on the school nutrition profession.

Online giving is the focus of today’s giving. Online gifts can be made TODAY at School Nutrition Foundation.

With the help of those who are committed to school nutrition programs, the School Nutrition Foundation will raise funds to provide more educational programs for SNA members, will secure funding to support the research that leads to the development of best practices, and will increase the resources available for scholarships for SNA members who want to continue their professional development and/or their formal education.

The day has featured several challenges:

  • From Mike Burke from Vulcan to Industry members to encourage personal gifts
  • From Mark Chavez to Major City Directors and to SNA members in California
  • From AccuTemp whose President and CEO, Scott Swogger, is past chairman of the School Nutrition Foundation Board of Directors to many individuals and companies. The Challenge from AccuTemp:
