Party 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, SNA and SNF Party With A Purpose at SNA National Meetings.

The Foundation puts the “fun” in fundraising at all of SNA’s national conferences throughout the year—

SNIC in Palm Springs, California;
LAC in Washington, DC;

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.
