SNF 2017 School Nutrition Heroes Nomination Deadline Extended!


The School Nutrition Foundation's (SNF) Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes

The School Nutrition Foundation’s (SNF) deadline for nominations of School Nutrition Heroes has been extended to Friday, October 28, 2016.

We need you help in identifying the five heroes to be recognized at the fourth annual Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes on Monday, April 3, 2017, during SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC) at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C.

What sets the recognition of School Nutrition Hero apart is that the hero is an SNA member who goes beyond the responsibilities of the job. School Nutrition Heroes who are recognized at the Celebration event for the Foundation are those who have a positive impact beyond the school nutrition program in the school and/or in the community.

Heroes have started homeless shelters, created a clothes closet for prom and graduation outfits for those who couldn’t afford to buy clothes for special events, coached Special Olympics teams, raised money for scholarships and children’s hospitals, helped school nutrition personnel who were effected by hurricanes and tornados, and more.

When you hear about these heroes, you probably think of “unsung” heroes that you know. Tell us about the people who go “above and beyond” and contribute to the school and/or the community beyond the school nutrition program. If you know of such an individual, you have the opportunity to nominate that person for SNF’s 2017 Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes.

Please tell us about the School Nutrition Hero that you admire. Submit your nomination by Friday, October 28. To learn more, visit
