CSNA & SNA Respond to Multi-State Law Suit on flexibility of the Federal Nutrition Guidelines

(April 5th, 2019)

Dear CSNA Members,

As many of you are aware, earlier this week the Attorney General of California moved forward with 5 other states to sue the Federal Government for meal flexibilities of the Federal Nutrition Guidelines. We have received calls from members and the public to see what our opinion was. Below is CSNA's statement, as well as a link to SNA's official statement on this lawsuit. We will keep you updated as more develops.

CSNA's Statement
The California School Nutrition Association supports a nutritionally-balanced school meal program backed by science that allows for local control based on student preferences and parent engagement aligned with nutrition standards.
