SNA of NH members – we have of course cancelled the upcoming Spring Conference. We will be meeting as a board when we can to look into options for getting the members together once it is safe to do so. We hope you are all well and please reach out if SNA can help with anything.

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Welcome to school year 2020 – 2021!! This has been unlike any school year we have seen before.

Everything is different, but really the same? The mission has not changed…we are here to feed children. In a very different way!! The year 2020 has come with way too many challenges for us and those around us. This is where we SHINE. School Nutrition ALWAYS rises to the occasion and we have seen that happening since March!!

SNA of NH is sorry to announce that we will be unable to hold our annual fall conference and vendor show. That is an event that we spend so much time on and we know our members look forward to that each year. While we will not be able to come together now…we are all here for each other!

We do plan on moving forward and planning a Spring 2021 conference with great optimism! We are so hoping that we can all come together in the Spring with some sense of normalcy. Please stay tuned as plans on this develop.

We are also working with SNA of NY and other state affiliates to offer a virtual vendor show. This is a very cool concept that is being worked on and we hope to share this with you around early winter. Imagine sitting down and being able to see new products, product innovations and multiple new ideas all from the comfort of your own computer!

We are all impacted individually and together by this pandemic. We wonder what today will bring us, what tomorrow will look like and how long this is our new normal. We need to have more patience than we have ever had before and we are suddenly finding ourselves saying “I don’t know” way too often!! We can do this…we have been doing it. We feed one child at a time, we take care of ourselves and those around us and we take one day at a time. SNA of NH – we got this!

Please contact any of us with any questions/ideas/concerns…we are here for you and happy to help.

Sincerely, Amy Cassidy, RD LD

Please join me in welcoming our 2020 – 2021 Board!!!

Are you ready for National School Lunch Week?

The 2020 NSLW theme Now Playing: School Lunch! Will put a spotlight on hit menu items that kids love while capitalizing on the popularity of movies to appeal to students in all grade levels.

SNA’s #NSLW20 campaign offers the “big picture” of tools and resources, including downloadable artwork and social media tips, to help you plan a successful celebration in a new operating environment and promote your program to students, parents and the local community. Why participate in NSLW?

Recognizing NSLW in your school and district helps you:

 Increase student participation  Spread the message to parents that you’re serving healthy, delicious lunch at school  Earn media coverage from local papers, TV stations and bloggers  Connect with teachers and administrators at your school or in your district to spread the word that school meals are healthy and delicious What if the timing doesn’t work for us?

NSLW 2020 is scheduled for October 12-16 by an act of Congress, but if your district is observing a holiday or teacher workday during that week you can celebrate the week before, the week after, or anytime—it’s up to you!


ABOUT US

The School Nutrition Association of New Hampshire was established in 1953 as a state affiliate to the American School Food Service Association, which is now known as the School Nutrition Association.

The School Nutrition Association is a national, nonprofit professional organization representing more than 55,000 members who provide high-quality, low-cost meals to students across the country. Recognized as the authority on school nutrition, the School Nutrition Association (SNA) has been advancing the availability, quality and acceptance of school nutrition programs as an integral part of education since 1946.

Members actively involved at the local level, promoting and supporting our common vision, goals and mission, form a key component to the success of child nutrition programs. Working with guidance from both state affiliates and the SNA, our local chapter initiates direct action at the grassroots level.
