LAC Scholarships

Due by November 17th, 2017
Due to all the generous participants at this year's Nor Cal Fundraiser at Campo di Bocce we are able to offer scholarships for chapter members to attend the Legislative Action Conferences in Sacramento and Washington DC.

Each year the Nor Cal chapter sends delegates to Washington DC and Sacramento where they meet with legislators to have their voices heard regarding issues faced by child nutrition professionals in school food service. These delegates represent all of us and we believe it is not only a privilege, but a responsibility to have a voice in the political arena that provides funding to our programs.

Are you interested in being one of these delegates?
Sign up for a scholarship today!
No prior experience required.
