Maine School Nutrition Association

Welcome to the Maine School Nutrition Association website.  Our goal is to provide healthy meals and promote nutrition education to Maine’s school children. Our big, audactious goal is for Maine to become the first state to provide universal feeding for all school offered meals!  Consider becoming a member of our organization and help us make sure that no Maine child goes hungry.  We want to be the primary source of child nutrition information and want to see every school represented and supported by a high level of leadership.

Dear all,

I wanted to send a quick update on the bills we've been supporting:
  • LD 816 An Act to Promote Academic Achievement through Hunger Relief for Maine Children (the bill that will use state dollars to cover half of the reduced price category) passed both the House and Senate, and is now on the Special Appropriations Table.  
  • Thanks for all of your help to get us this far.

Did you know you don't have to leave home for trainings? Are you short credits for recertification?

You can get last minute continuing education credits through The National School Food Service Management Institute in Oxford, Mississippi. They are now offering online classes and webinars. Don't think for a moment that you don't have time.  They recommend only taking 10-15 minutes at a time to work on a class. You pick up where you left off the next time you long in.
