The SNEB Board of Directors' Advisory Committee on Public Policy issued a statement as part of the public comment period for the Department of Agriculture's proposed elimination of broad based categorial eligibility for SNAP benefits.
The proposal is estimated to affect more than 3 million Americans and more than 500,000 children’s access to free USDA school meals since children who live in households that receive SNAP benefits would no longer be directly certified or automatically eligible to participate in USDA school meal programs. It would also impact a school's use of the Community Eligibility Provision, which allows a school to offer free meals to all students without collecting meal applications based on the school area's SNAP eligibility numbers.

Exposure to multiple vegetables simultaneously may be more effective than a single vegetable to increase young children's intake, according to lead author Astrid A.M. Poelman, PhD, in her JNEB article that was mentioned in HealthDay.
Researchers from C.S. Mott Children's Hospital studied 237 mother-child pairs each seated alone in a room with different food options, including chocolate cupcakes. They found in their JNEB-published study direct commands like "only eat one" were used more frequently by mothers of obese children, while mothers of non-obese kids were more likely to use indirect comments like, "That's too much. You haven't had your dinner." Cited by University of Michigan's Health Lab.
Purdue University via SNEB
Purdue University is hosting a conference on "The Ethics of Eating: Promoting Personal & Global Choices" this weekend, Sept. 30 – Oct. 2 in the PMU South Ballroom.
Speakers will discuss food production and meeting the energy and nutrient needs of a global population; sustainability to ensure vital resources are appropriately managed; access to food recognizing marked disparities across populations; diverse, and often not health-promoting, drivers of food choice; and civil liberties that may clash with population-based priorities.
The conference "will assemble individuals with expertise in diverse relevant fields to assess the ethical and functional dimensions of these issues and to identify promising new research and practical directions."

Feed the Truth
Feed the Truth is a new nonprofit organization "seeking to advance truth, trust and transparency in the food system." They announced Sept. 16 that Lucy Martinez Sullivan will be their first executive director.
Sullivan most recently served as the inaugural executive director of 1,000 Days, a nonprofit advocacy organization working to improve maternal and young child nutrition in the U.S. and around the world, and will continue to serve as co-chair of the Global Nutrition Report.
"Food is at the center of some of the world's biggest challenges, and I believe we can no longer afford business-as-usual approaches to a food system that is fueling a health epidemic and a climate crisis. To me, Feed the Truth presents an extraordinary opportunity to drive a bold agenda for a healthier, fairer food system — one that works for people and not just profits," Sullivan said in a press release announcing her appointment.
