SNF SUPPORTS SNA MEMBERS – THE REAL HEROES WHO FEED HUNGRY CHILDREN!

THREE SNF EQUIPMENT GRANTS for 2020

Equipment Grants:

Never in the history of SNA, has the need for new or updated kitchen equipment and serving lines been greater than it is today. SNF has been working hard to expand our equipment grants program for the new year in order to improve the critical state of members’ kitchens. The 2021 SNF Equipment Grants Scholarship Program will now consist of multiple applications for not only one (1) but FOUR (4) full grants! SNF has teamed up with multiple companies to provide more Equipment Grants to deserving school districts! This year, only finalists will be asked to submit a 2-3-minute video.
