Message from Rick Hall, our SNA Foundation Representative.....

Yes, it’s that time of year… donations are needed Every year, each state’s School Nutrition Association raises funds for the School Nutrition Foundation. Your monetary gifts help in a number of ways including: educational and professional development, research, and scholarships. This year at our State Conference in September, I am going to ask *EVERYONE* to donate. And if you know me, which most of you do…I’ll try to make giving fun. Our goal is set at $3,500, but I think we can do better. So start saving now. If you put aside 1 dollar a week, you can easily save $10 for a donation. Ten dollars is the minimum for your name to be listed as a donor on the National and State listings, BUT we’ll take more if you have it to give. I will have tablets and computers at the membership booth for our "foodies" to give. You don’t have to wait until then. You can make a donation at any time by Clicking Here.

Here's where the fun begins...For those donating before our State Conference, Rick has a surprise for you at the Membership booth.

  • If $1,000 is donated online before the conference, Rick comes in his full Irish dress...yes, he has a kilt
  • If $1,500 is donated online before the conference, Rick brings back "Bo Peep"
  • If $2,000 is donated online before the conference, You get Bo Peep with a clean-shaven face to apply make-up as you see fit. Then you can take a Polaroid to keep as a thank you...From me to you

There will be a lot going on in the Membership booth this year, so I will need some help talking to prospective new members and collecting donations. If you can help for a while, I would appreciate it.

Look forward to our event,

Rick Hall
