President NYSNA

Great Neck Public Schools - School Nutrition Director

On this journey to implement the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010, learn what nearly 3500 members have discovered. Our members recognize the value of membership in NYSNA. Relating to a quote from Arthur Ashe's "Start where you are, Use what you have, Do what you can",  we can look to the Association and its members as a resource "using what we can" to be better informed and effective in the jobs we do. All of our members contribute to our mission to "Promote Excellence in Child Nutrition". Thank you for your membership, thank you for your support as we continue on the Road to Excellence!
