The MSNA Annual Conference is the "School Event of the Year" and an annual convening for sharing, learning, and networking, and is a time to honor all the work of School Nutrition professionals. Sessions will include roundtable discussions, menu planning, sales 101, presentations by MDE, farm-to-school, and so much more. This is a time for the community of school nutrition directors, managers, staff, and industry partners to come together to grow as professionals. Learn how you can improve and enhance your program!
