Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes

Third Annual Celebration in 2016

The 2016 Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes will be held on Monday, February 29, 2016 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. The event, held during SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC), will be the third annual celebration of the extraordinary men and women in the school nutrition profession.

The Celebration supports the School Nutrition Foundation as the Foundation provides professional development and education, supports research to establish “best practices” in school nutrition, and offers scholarships to SNA members to advance their formal education.
