News Tidbits: Young Leaders & School Food Myths

The Washington Post published an interesting piece that describes 5 Myths About School Food. This article discusses how the recent Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR) bill affects National School Lunch Programs. Importantly, it highlights challenges that healthy kids advocates still face. The passage of CNR  is an encouraging step as we work towards equitable access to wholesome food for all youth but there is still tremendous work ahead.

I was also forwarded this inspirational story about young food system leaders in Boston. High school and college students, “the backbone of the Slow Food movement”, serve as active members that bring a “freshness, an energy, an optimism and creative spark” to the organization.
