SNA Celebrates 75 Years with A Brilliant History of Serving Kids


Celebrating-75-years The School Nutrition Association (SNA) is celebrating its 75th anniversary!

This organizational milestone--during a global pandemic—is the ultimate example of how SNA and the profession it represents triumphs over and over again in the face of trial. Its signature resilience has never been so evident. The Association’s remarkable longevity is rooted in the unwavering focus of its leaders, members, Headquarters staff, allies and industry partners on its core mission: Feeding children nutritious meals at school to help them grow and be best positioned for lifelong success.

We are excited to share a new digital booklet, A Brilliant History of Serving Kids , which highlights just a sampling of the achievements and challenges experienced by SNA over the last three-quarters of a century. Named to reflect our diamond anniversary, the pages that follow sparkle with cherished memories, surprising facts, familiar faces and signature optimism. 

We encourage you to take your time in reading it—learn more about SNA’s distinguished history. Share it with your team with PRIDE in your profession!

In addition to this new digital booklet, SNA has compiled all of our 75th anniversary interviews with pioneering trailblazers, current champions and rising stars from the past year of School Nutrition into a commemorative companion piece, Reflections on a Brilliant History of Serving Kids , that we also encourage you to download and share.

A special thanks to the industry partners General Mills Convenience and Foodservice, Heartland School Solutions, ITW Food Equipment Group and Cool School Cafe, whose generous support made A Brilliant History of Serving Kids possible.
