Student Essay Contest

So that the very important voices and perspectives of our children are heard, FOROT is also sponsoring an Essay Contest for 7-12 grade students. While 3 winner and 3 runner-up prizes will be awarded, all contest entries will be shared with Congress. 

 

More than 30 million children participate in the National School Lunch (NSLP) and School Breakfast Programs (SBP), and three quarters of the children in the school lunch program are from lower-income families. Improvements to school food are a key strategy to support every child’s health. The COVID-19 pandemic is increasing national attention on the critical role that school meals have in feeding children in the United States.

School Meal and Nutrition Panel 

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

We are pleased to announce our latest initiative: “Food: Not Just for Thought!”  Partnering with the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) in building advocacy support focused on healthy school meals and the Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR) moving through Congress.

 

In concert with CSPI, we are spearheading activities and encouraging participation of districts, schools, parents, and other grassroots and grass top stakeholders. CNR, targets rulemaking for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to restore and update the science-based nutrition standards for school meals. Each panel presentation will provide a broader understanding of the parameters surrounding the health and nutrition of our children.  

 

Advance registration is required. We welcome your presence and sharing  widely among your staff, members, and constituency.
