SNF Sends Big “Thank You” to State Ambassadors


SNF Ambassadors

State Ambassadors played a huge role in supporting the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) in 2019. Throughout the year, they helped to raise funds at their state conferences and meetings and then sent these donations to SNF. The money these Ambassadors raised has been added to SNF’s Annual Fund and, in turn, has helped to fund the scholarships, education and research that SNF provides SNA members.

Ambassadors have such an important job because they not only help raise funds, but also help raise awareness about what SNF does for SNA members. Without SNF:

  • There would be no scholarships for SNA members to continue their education or attend National Conferences;
  • There would be no grants from Walmart to increase breakfast participation in classrooms or from USDA to create leadership education workshops; and
  • There would be no funding for critical research about the decline of school meal participation and other challenges facing school nutrition professionals every day.

In January, the Foundation will announce the winning state in each membership category who raised the most money for the Foundation. The state and its Ambassador will be recognized at the Red Carpet Awards at the 2020 Annual National Conference (ANC) in Nashville and receive an ANC scholarship to award to a deserving member back in their state. Many thanks and a very happy New Year to all the states who supported SNF in 2019 and to all the states who’ll join our efforts in 2020. Remember, giving a little today makes a big dream come true tomorrow!
