House Subcommittee Hearing: “Growing a Healthy Next Generation: Examining Federal Child Nutrition Programs"

The House Education and Labor Committee met Tuesday to discuss reauthorizing child nutrition programs that Chairman Bobby Scott (D-VA) said would be a priority this Congress.  NSBA helped inform witness testimony at this hearing and school boards were mentioned numerous times as being integral to the stakeholder engagement process.  Today’s hearing is likely the first of many to help inform the reauthorization process.  NSBA will continue to engage Congress and the Administration to ensure school districts have the flexibility they need to serve healthy, tasty meals to students.
