Corporate Sponsorships

Thank you for supporting the School Nutrition Foundation. There are many ways for you and your company to get involved and help us achieve our mission of advancing school nutrition programs.  Check out how your company and SNA members would benefit from your support.

YOUR INVOLVEMENT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

You’re invited to become part of the SNF’s Walk With a Purpose. Out of an abundance of concern about the health and safety of our sponsors, participants, volunteers and staff, we will be transitioning SNF’s annual Party With a Purpose (held at SNA’s national conferences) to a virtual Walk With a Purpose. SNF is putting the “fun” in fundraising, by creating new and safe initiatives to raise money for the foundation while networking with SNA members and promoting your company’s brand. Find out more about Walk With a Purpose here.

SNA members Never. Stop. Learning. which is why one of the Foundation’s top priorities is to provide professional development and conference scholarships to our members. Continuing education is critical to advancing their professional goals. Click here to find out about all SNF scholarships and the expanding
Equipment Grant program.

You can become a Friend of the Foundation by making a donation today. Companies and organizations that contribute at least $1,000 annually enjoy special benefits that not only support the School Nutrition Foundation’s scholarship and professional development programs, but also help promote that support to SNA members. For more information, here.

SNA prioritized five research topics for school nutrition in 2020, identifying specific sub-topics and areas of focus, including research strategies to strengthen the base of knowledge in each priority area. Funding research is an excellent way to support the School Nutrition Industry and provide a valuable resource to all SNA members. Find out more about our research projects here.

Walk With a Purpose


In an effort to raise awareness about the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) and increase the percentage of individual giving by SNA members, SNF has created their first-ever virtual fundraising walk which will join school nutrition professionals and SNA industry members from across the United States. You’ll form teams, compete for prizes, raise funds and walk straight into Spring and more hopeful times ahead.

Want to have fun, take care of your own mental and physical wellness and support the School Nutrition Foundation at the same time? Then join your school nutrition colleagues for SNF’s virtual “Walk With a Purpose” 5K Walkathon, held from April 15 - 22, 2021. The Welcome Pep Rally will be held April 14th at 3:00 PM EST.

The School Nutrition Foundation provides resources to school nutrition professionals that enable them to feed more children and grow professionally, engage the community in a better understanding of the value of school meals, and help students develop life-long healthy eating habits.

Scholarship Funding Opportunities


Since it’s inception in 1969, SNF has provided scholarships to SNA members.  Here are the current scholarships and grants that your company can sponsor.  Please call the Foundation to inquire about “naming” a scholarship that can highlight your company and support to every SNA member.

  • SNF Equipment Grants – This expanding grant program offers four SNA districts the opportunity to improve or expand their kitchens and serving facilities. Find out more about it here.
  • Professional Growth Scholarships – Sponsoring this scholarship helps members achieve their educational dreams with an education scholarship. Professional Growth Scholarships provide SNA members with funding for tuition and books for the following school year. Find out more about it here.
  • Conference Scholarships – Attending a national conference can be lifechanging for SNA members which is why SNF provides scholarships to attend SNIC, LAC and ANC. Make a difference and sponsor an SNF Conference Scholarship today.
  • SNS Credentialing Exam Scholarship - NEW IN 2020! SNF is looking for a forward-thinking company to support a scholarship for SNA members to study for and take the SNS Credentialing Exam.  The SNS Credential is a mark of excellence and achievement that reflects what it takes to manage school nutrition programs in today’s challenging climate. We are in the early stages of planning this scholarship, so call today to become a part of this exciting addition to SNF’s scholarship program.

2020 Research Agenda Funding Opportunities

Equal access for every student to nutritious meals at school, ensuring their optimal health and well-being is SNA’s vision. And serves as a guiding principle of its research agenda.  All of these topics may not be new to the field of school nutrition; however, each of them is important to school nutrition professionals and requires research to be better understood:

  • Meal Participation
  • Unpaid Meals
  • Rural Districts
  • Mentorship and Staff Development
  • Value and Outcomes of School Nutrition Programs

If your company is interested in funding an SNF Research Project, please call the Foundation at (800) 877-3000.
