FoodCorps is a non-partisan, non-profit organization. FoodCorps staff and FoodCorps AmeriCorps members may not participate in any partisan or seemingly partisan activities during work time charged to a Corporation for National and Community Service funded grant or while earning AmeriCorps service hours. No federal funds were used to prepare or distribute these advocacy actions.
The bipartisan Food and Nutrition Education in Schools Act of 2020 would allocate federal funding for projects that connect students to healthy food.
School-aged children spend six to seven hours a day in school, yet they receive just five hours of nutritional education on average in a given year.
The president’s proposed 2021 budget, proposed changes to school meals, a new food and nutrition educator bill, and other February policy updates.
