We're thrilled to share the incredible news that this summer Governor Healey took a historic step by approving the Massachusetts School Meal Nutrition Standards Commission! This commission is charged with studying and recommending enhanced nutrition standards for K-12 public school meals. Even more exciting, the Massachusetts Healthy School Lunch Coalition was named as a member of the commission. We are working with stakeholders from across the state to shape a healthier future for Massachusetts students.
Our goal in this Commission is to represent communities across MA as we work towards making health-promoting changes. We are engaging parents, teachers, students, and food service professionals as we embark on this new journey.
Thanks to the coalition’s collective voice, passion, and advocacy, we've achieved this significant milestone! This achievement represents not only a win for our coalition but a triumph for the health and well-being of every student who will benefit from improved nutritional options.
Thank YOU for being on this journey with us!
