SNA PAC: Political Action Committee

SNA Political Action Committee (PAC)

Each year, the School Nutrition Association Political Action Committee (PAC) makes contributions to support members of Congress who have shown leadership in fighting for the child nutrition programs. .

The SNA Executive Board founded the PAC on the heels of the 1981 federal budget crisis that resulted in deep cuts in federal child nutrition program budgets. The goals behind the creation of the PAC still hold true today:

  • To educate members of Congress about child nutrition programs
  • Support federally elected officials and candidates who back our positions on child nutrition programs.
