64th Annual State Conference Canceled

The Minnesota School Nutrition Association (MSNA) regretfully announces the cancellation of the August 2020 Annual State Conference in St. Cloud due to ongoing public safety concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic. After thorough review of public health recommendations and assessing potential impacts for conference attendees, MSNA Executive Board and Conference Committee made the difficult decision, which closely follows the cancellation announcement of SNA’s Annual National Conference planned for July.
