What does ANC mean to our members? Education, new food products, and friendship.  Find out more by reading some of the postcards we received as part of the ANC 2009 Postcard Sweepstakes.

“ANC 2008 Philadelphia - This was my first ANC.  It was fantastic!!!  One of my favorite classes was on Introducing New Foods – Great Grains.  I love to see kids try new foods, and sometimes they actually like the new item and incorporate it into their diet.”

Sabrina Jewell, Henderson County, KY


“I love going to the conferences.  The one I have enjoyed the most so far was last summer in Philly.  I have attended several conferences; state and national and they seem to get better each year… can’t wait for Vegas! 

I am an elementary cafeteria manager and I love my job and most of all the children…you meet a different one everyday…they change your outlook on life.  Hope to see everyone in Vegas, 2009!”

Elizabeth Jones, Oldham County, KY


“My most memorable child nutrition moment was my first ANC in 2004.  I was a 24 year old, fresh out of college CN Director taking on the world and all of those in it who attempted to bring harm to child nutrition!  When I stepped into the first general session I was so overwhelmed with joy.  Before me was an army of “Child Nutrition Superheroes” geared up to fight right along side me!  It was awesome!

Leuna Johnson, Assumption Parish, LA


“Chicago (2007) was my first ANC.  Until going there, I didn’t realize how many dedicated people there are making sure kids get nutritious meals.  You could tell they all really cared.”

Debbie Taylor, Great Falls, MT

My name is Nancy Thatcher, and I won the trip to ANC this year! I jumped up and down and yelled, "I won! I won!" several times,I was so excited! I am still excited about winning my trip to this years conference. I always look forward to meeting new people and learning more about our business.
This will be my sixth national conference. I am a manager and I like the workshops on how to treat my employees better, and my favorites are how to take better care of my students. Our students are our main customers and they deserve the best tasting, most nutritious food we can provide. School nutrition is not a job to me, it is my love to take care of my students.
The students with allergies and diseases are even more dear to me and we have several at our school. The workshops on diabetes and the nut allergies were especially helpful to me in Philly.
Our world is moving and changing so fast that these conferences are very important in helping us stay up to date. SNA keeps us updated on so many things throughout the year, it is a blessing. Thank you for all you do to help me be the best I can be. The year round information you provide is also very helpful to me and my students.
