About Industry Membership

MSNA is proud to partner with our industry members. By partnering together we can provide professional development resources to increase nutrition awareness and education, as well as business, culinary, and food safety skills.

The Minnesota School Nutrition Association (MSNA) is the professional association for school food service employees and allied groups. As an Industry Partner, MSNA offers a variety of options to help you reach more customers and you will have access to Directors, Buyers, and future child nutrition department leaders who represent School Food and Nutrition Services in Minnesota.

Membership is for one-year and runs January 1 of each year until December 31. Please explore what our three membership levels offer by navigating to the Benefits document below.

MSNA offers three levels of membership for industry:

  • Elite Member - $2300
  • Premier Member - $1200 
  • Industry Member - $450
