Being a member of SNAAZ for over 18 years has provided me with knowledge and training that I could not have received elsewhere. It has also been given me the opportunity to serve on the boards of both the chapter and state level. Being a member is a great way to professionally grow and enable yourself to be the best you can be.
Deer Valley School District
"As a broker, being a member of SNAAZ allows me to better understand the goals and mission of school foodservice professionals. Without SNAAZ to help educate me I would be lost on what is important to its members. SNAAZ has done a great job of including everyone from cooks to directors to processors, brokers and everyone in between."
"It is very important as an industry member to join the SNAAZ association to be able to support their initiatives, goals and mission for a successful and sustainable Child Nutrition Program. Their commitment to inclusion and diversity have helped SNAAZ to create a stronger and successful partnership with all stakeholders."
"As an industry member, SNAAZ demonstrations the commitment of school nutrition professional's mission to feed children during the school day and beyond. It provides numerous opportunities for growth and helps better understand the needs of school nutrition professionals across the state of Arizona."
"The SNAAZ website is my first stop for all current information for what is happening with school food and nutrition programs and events here in Arizona."
Buena Vista Foods
"SNAAZ lets it's members be in the "know" about what's going on in Arizona but also around the country. The Chapter meetings provide fun classes and activities where you not only earn CEU's but meet lasting friends from other districts as well as in the industry. I have been fortunate enough to be involved as the Industry Advisor for several years and have loved becoming more involved with our association."
