This fall, we all have an opportunity to demand better and more equitably distributed nutrition programs and school lunches for children in the US. Join a panel curated by Slow Food USA’s Food and Farm Policy team to learn the ins and outs of the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act (CNR), a bill expected to make it to congress in fall 2021.
Slow Food USA has advocated for an equitable CNR that will restore and build upon the provisions of the landmark Healthy and Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 in these meaningful ways:
- Enhance and strengthen farm-to-school programming
- Effectively integrate nutrition education into school curricula
- Strengthen cafeteria staff and equipment resources
- Provide children with more time to enjoy healthful, culturally meaningful, climate-friendly school meals
Once you learn more about the CNR, we’ll share some ways you can get involved and advocate for this dramatic shift in school nutrition programs across the US.
The CNR webinar will feature:
