Dear Industry Friend,
Thank you for supporting the School Nutrition Association of Virginia over the past years as a valued member. As you know, our mission is to promote quality school nutrition programs, provide educational opportunities and to positively affect regulatory and legislative issues.
Our theme for 2015 – 2016 is “Building a Better Tomorrow Through Good Nutrition Today”. This theme should remind us that with the challenges we face each day that we need to remember the children we feed and focus on new and creative ways to serve them nutritious meals. With your continued membership in SNA-VA, I am confident that we will move in the right direction, together.
Due to many factors we face each day, food costs in the United States will most certainly continue to rise. As the economy still continues to present financial challenges for many families, school nutrition programs expect a progressive increase in the number of school breakfasts, lunches and after school snacks served each day during the upcoming school year. Coupled with this, together we face the inherent challenges that come with striving to maintain the implementation of the new nutrition guidelines. SNA-VA needs you, our Industry Partner, to join us this year as we endeavor to ensure that our students continue to receive the highest quality of service throughout the state. Through this partnership, we will provide essential support to the school nutrition programs in Virginia.
Current membership information and renewal application are enclosed. Please complete your application and submit payment. I encourage you to contact Elizabeth Wimmer, our Association Coordinator, if you should have any questions or need assistance with completing the application. Elizabeth can be reached toll free at (866) 448-8064 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your support is both vital and very much appreciated.
Francine Ivery, President
School Nutrition Association of Virginia
