Nutrition & Food Assistance

Federal policy related to nutrition or dietary guidelines should be based on sound and peer-
reviewed nutrition science, should not prejudice particular agricultural commodities or products, and should not consider non-nutrition related elements such as environmental impacts or agricultural practices.

NASDA supports the USDA Farm to School Grant Program as it increases use and improves access to local foods in schools – thus boosting farm income and economic opportunities – while also fostering experiential food education for our nation’s children.
