2018 Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes: Call for Nominations


Your help is needed in identifying the 2018 School Nutrition Heroes! Do you know an SNA member who goes above and beyond his or her responsibilities to make a difference in the community? We need you to tell us about this extraordinary person.

The Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes will be held for the 5th year on Monday, March 5, 2018 during SNA’s Legislative Action Conference (LAC). We are looking for the five special SNA members who will be recognized at the Celebration. These heroes represent the commitment and passion of school nutrition professionals throughout the nation and are often the unsung heroes in our midst. They do not look for recognition but deserve to be acknowledged for making a difference in the lives of others.

Past recipients have included a woman who began two shelters for homeless in her community, a woman who helped provide clothes for homecoming, proms, and other special events for students who couldn’t afford fancy attire, a man who served a number of local food banks throughout the year, a woman who provided housing for the homeless to give them an opportunity to get back on their feet, a man who taught teens how to grow, harvest, and prepare foods, and others with inspiring stories.

We are looking for the women and men who inspire you and who serve as role models for others. To tell us about the individual that you think should be recognized as a School Nutrition Hero, simply fill out the Online Nomination Form. All nominations are due no later than Friday, October 27, 2017!
