Our Programs

The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) always has its members at the forefront when developing programs and resources to support the school nutrition profession. Through our programs and projects, we aim to develop tools and resources that help school nutrition operators expand their programs, attract more students to their meals, and advocate for policy changes that benefit our professionals and feed our future.

This project provides school nutrition professionals with resources to guide them through supply chain challenges.
