Strategic Priorities

Each year, SNA’s Board of Directors works with staff to establish an Annual Plan of strategies and tactics to meet the goals and objectives set out in its multi-year Strategic Plan, which identifies four core areas:

  • Professional Development: School nutrition professionals will continually improve their knowledge and skills to administer, manage, deliver and sustain successful school meal programs.
  • Advocacy: Policy makers, school officials, parents and school nutrition professionals will rely on SNA as the leading advocate for school nutrition programs.
  • Membership & Community: School nutrition programs nationwide will be strengthened through the engagement, leadership and collaboration among SNA’s members, state associations, the School Nutrition Foundation, allied partners and other stakeholders.
  • Governance & Operations: SNA will have a financially sustainable funding model with a nimble governance and headquarters staff structure that is aligned with the strategic plan and reflects contemporary business practices.

SNA is committed to ensuring transparency of its activities and governance.
