    Hello Delaware School Nutrition Professionals!

    I am very excited for the opportunity to represent the Delaware School Nutrition Association for the school year 2020-2021.  We have a wonderful membership full of passionate and caring individuals that on a daily basis touch the lives of so many of our students in a positive manner. 

    My presidency has started out in very uncertain and confusing times as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are all in this together and DSNA is here to support you with all of your questions and concerns.  We have almost one thousand amazing members with fantastic ideas.   Those ideas have brought about incredible emergency feeding programs throughout the state.  Now more than ever, the world realizes the crucial work you do and how truly essential you are to each child you provide healthy meals to every day. 

    We have a lot to look forward to this school year and will communicate with you any changes to our scheduled events, as needed.  Our first gathering is scheduled for Saturday, October 17, 2020 with a unique event;  The first in DSNA history.  Our rescheduled Spring Conference will now be a new Fall Conference with vendor food show and education sessions, combined with the House of Delegates meeting.  This fantastic event will be held at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington.  This is a great time to network with school nutrition professionals from around the state to share and encourage one another.  We are also planning the Spring Conference at Dover Downs in 2021.   I hope to see you at both of these wonderful events.

    We as an association want you to have the tools and resources you need to do great things.  I am here to serve you and help make this school year a success in any way I can.  You can contact me with any questions or ideas that you may have at [email protected] or at 302-529-3110.   Stay safe, positive, and healthy.  I cannot wait until we are all together again!
