SNA PPL Committee Drafts 2017 Position Paper

2017-02-21 | School Nutrition Association

Every year the Public Policy & Legislation (PPL) Committee meets to draft a Position Paper for the new year. The meeting takes place over two days and during that time, the Committee discusses various topics, legislation, and regulations that have impacted child nutrition programs, as well as issues that have occurred.

This year, SNA had over 2,400 members turn in surveys that were sent out to evaluate issues within the field. These surveys directly help to shape the Paper. The Position Paper is typically made up of four or five requests to Congress that work to improve child nutrition programs. This is important because it unites SNA’s 57,000 members behind common issues and outlines the policy agenda for the year. SNA’s Position Papers from the last 5 years can be in the Legislative Action Center.

Stay tuned for the 2017 Position Paper to be released by the end of the month.
