Recognizes Local SNA Chapters in Kansas

SNA local chapters are the grassroots of SNA. A thriving local chapter provides training and professional development opportunities that will give members a chance to share ideas, successes and challenges together with peers in supportive environments. Chapters are full of friends and fun, give back to the community in a meaningful way, and advocate for school nutrition programs and work with school nutrition professionals on a local level.

Each year, SNA-KS recognizes the local chapters for their dedication and commitment to both the members and community, all the while, striving to accomplish SNA’s mission and focus.

SNA Chapter award winners are recognized at the SNA-KS Fall Conference each year.
