Maine School Nutrition Association


Our goal is to provide healthy meals and promote nutrition education to Maine's school children. Dedicated to our mission of making sure that no Maine child goes hungry, we are fortunate to have universal feeding at no cost in Maine! Maine was one of the first states in the nation to provide statewide free meals for all children. We are the primary source of child nutrition information statewide and want to see every school represented and supported and by a high level of leadership. Consider becoming a member of Maine School Nutrition Association and teaming up with us to ensure the health and wellness of Maine's youth.
