Sign-on letter to the White House re: Food Service Guidelines for Federal Facilities
In response to the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health solicitation
The 46 undersigned organizations urge the White House to issue an Executive Order to require implementation of the Food Service Guidelines for Federal Facilities (FSG) in all federally owned and operated facilities. Developed by an interagency working group led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the FSG are evidence-based, currently voluntary best practices to align food service in federal facilities with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and advance food safety, facility efficiency, environmental support, and community development.
