The School Nutrition Association (SNA) is the go-to organization for helping millions of kids across the nation get low-cost, high-nutrition school meals. Like any organization, occasions arise where a fundraiser is just what the doctor ordered. When that happens, Rada Cutlery is here to help!

What is the School Nutrition Association?

Founded in 1946, the SNA consists of school nutrition professionals who have made it their mission to make certain that American kids get the best possible meals at school. Through advocacy, lobbying, applied expertise, and sound management, the SNA never stops in its quest to see that students have a better chance for good health and academic success. The SNA works with its own members, administrators, experts, and more to accomplish its goals.

With a role in the lives of millions of schoolchildren, the SNA is an important force for good. SNA activities can include education for school food service professionals, attending conferences with industry leaders from across the country, developing guidelines that improve meal quality, research, and many more. Every year, the SNA awards scholarships to members in order to further their education, as well as attend national SNA conferences.

Also, many school nutrition programs raise money for scholarships for graduating students.  Fundraising with Rada Cutlery’s kitchen products seems to be a perfect match for school cooks!
