Jessica Donze Black Participates in Google+ Hangout to Discuss Snack Foods and Beverages Sold in Schools

For the first time in more than 30 years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released its much anticipated proposed nutrition standards for snack foods and beverages sold in schools. Currently, many U.S. students have tremendous access to sugary, fatty, and salty foods and drinks via vending machines, school stores, and snack bars. The need to update these standards has never been greater.

Kids’ Safe & Healthful Foods (KSHF) Project, MomsRising.org, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution team, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), and the National Education Association (NEA) will discuss the impact of these guidelines at a Google+ Hangout on Monday, March 11 at 12 pm ET.   Participants: – Jessica Donze Black, KSHF Project – Monifa Bandele, MomsRising.org – Jo Creed, Jamie Oliver Food Foundation – Margo Wootan, CSPI – Lisa Creighton, NEA/Bag the Junk   Hangout will be streamed live at www.google.com/+foodrevolutioncommunity and
