Vegan school lunches expand (according to the School Nutrition Association, in 2016, 11.5% of school districts provided vegan meals in an least one school and this increased to 14% in 2017) @ https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/blogs/stateline/2019/09/30/vegan-school-lunches-expand-despite-opposition-from-meat-industry and tracking Impossible Foods growth with a March survey that finds 36% of Americans wished fast food had more vegetarian options @ https://morningconsult.com/form/impossible-foods-growth/ yet there is a backlash from some. (The CEOs of Whole Foods and Chipotle criticize the products as highly/ultra-processed.) @ https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/2019/10/7/20880318/meatless-meat-mainstream-backlash-impossible-burger

Ever wonder what the difference between a Research Brief and a GEM (Great Educational Material) is? There might be overlap between the two manuscripts, certainly, but in general, the GEM focuses more on the curricula or activity and the research article more on the results and White-sell methods.
JNEB's editor-in-chief Karen Chapman-Novakofski, PhD, RDN, goes into the differences in-depth in this SNEB.org blog post.
Last week, the House Education and Labor Committee conducted a hearing on the impact of the proposed categorical eligibility rule on free school meals. The proposal will eliminate automatic access to free school meals to nearly 1 million children, according to USDA's own analysis. A webcast of the hearing may be accessed here. The prepared testimony of Brandon Lipps, deputy undersecretary for food, nutrition, and consumer services, is also available. Food Navigator USA covered the proposed policy here.
Responding to the new information, Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, chair of the Nutrition Subcommittee, issued this statement.
- ACTION ITEM: Given USDA's release of the school meals impact, the comment period on the categorical eligibility proposal has been reopened for two weeks. SNEB commented earlier and urges individual members to do the same by the new Nov. 1 deadline.
This anniversary event in Washington D.C. is sponsored by Congressman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., in collaboration with Hunger Free America and serves as a complement to the two-day Boston Conference earlier in the month hosted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Department of Nutrition and the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University.
This event will have a deeper focus on hunger and food justice, as well as health and sustainability. Through two panels organizers and attendees will celebrate the 1969 White House Conference's success in reducing hunger and malnutrition in the U.S. in the years following the original conference, recognize individuals and groups who have continued to fight for an end to food insecurity, and discuss scientific evidence for new solutions for the future.
