About MSNA

Our core purpose is to provide healthy meals and promote nutrition education to Maine’s school children. We have a vision of the future where MSNA is the primary source of child nutrition information and where every school is represented and supported by a high level of leadership. Our big, audacious goal is for Maine to be the first state to provide universal feeding for all school-offered meals (breakfast and lunch).
