Mother Of The Year 2024 Winner

Nomination was sent in by her son, Giovanni

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA – Andrea Fernandes of North Dartmough, MA was recently chosen as Better Made Snack Foods’ Mother of the Year in the annual 2024 Mother’s Day contest. Andrea is an administrative assistant at the University of Massachusetts and loves hanging out with her son and friends, going to his soccer games, and loves a good joke. Here is her nomination as written by Giovanni:

My mom deserves to be your Mom of the Year winner this year because of how amazing she is. My mom goes above and beyond for me every single day. She puts me above anyone and anything including herself – making sure I get to school on time, taking me to my sports games/practices, never missing any event, dropping me off, picking me up, making sure I have everything I need. She’s just amazing and all the hugs, and “Thanks mom” I say is simply not enough to show her how incredibly lucky I am to have her as my mom. Please help me surprise her and for once put her first.

“Andrea’s nomination really touched my heart,” says Cathy Gusmano, CEO of Better Made. “Besides working a full time job to support her family, she works just as much making sure everyone gets where they need to be. We are happy to reward Melissa with a sampler box of Better Made Snacks.”
