The School Nutrition Association has released its 2007 Legislative Issue Paper, setting its priorities for the upcoming Congressional session.Among its priorities, SNA plans to urge the Congress to require a uniform national standard to govern the sale of all foods sold or made available on the school campus during the school day. It also endorses the Child Nutrition Promotion and School Lunch Protection Act, which expands the “time and place” rule. Additionally, the group wants Congress to provide $23 million over three years to carry out the reduced price school meal pilot and urges that 10 cents be provided in USDA commodities for each school breakfast served. Finally, it supports expanding the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.
