We want to empower and inspire school nutrition professionals and to recognize those individuals in our profession who go above and beyond in their jobs.
Since 2014, SNF has celebrated the commitment of those in the school nutrition profession who not only serve the students, but also the families in their communities.
Our Heroes come from diverse communities across the United States – they share the spirit of service and the passion to make a difference. Meet these inspiring individuals:
