USDA: Call for Comments on Local School Wellness Policies
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is accepting comments through April 28 on its proposed rule for local school wellness policies. In Section 204 of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 there are updated guidelines for local school wellness policies, which are required of schools receiving federal funds for school meal programs. The proposed rule is how USDA expects to implement the new law; this is an advocacy opportunity to share policy and how the law will be implemented. Comments are accepted online here.
