Organizational letter opposing FY24 rider on USDA school meal rule
Re: the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies spending bill
The undersigned strongly support the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s proposed rule to strengthen nutrition standards consistent with the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (“Child Nutrition Programs: Revisions to Meal Patterns Consistent With the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans”). We must preserve and build on the progress schools and the food industry have made over the past decade to meet science-based nutrition standards. These improvements are an amazing success story and one of the most important public health achievements in a generation.
