SNA Submits Comments on USDA Proposed Competitive Foods Rules; Offers Sweepstakes for Trip for Two to LAC 2014


April 3, 2013 - SNA has submitted comments in response to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) proposed regulations to establish nutrition standards for “competitive” foods and beverages. SNA’s comments are available by clicking here. To protect nutritional integrity and minimize unnecessary complexity, SNA’s recommended changes to the proposal are designed to bring the competitive food regulations in line with new nutrition standards for school meals.

SNA is also holding a “Competitive Foods Sweepstakes” to  encourage SNA members to submit their own comments to USDA sharing insight on how the proposed rule will impact your program. Two randomly selected SNA members will win a trip for two to the 2014 Legislative Action Conference (LAC) in Washington, D.C., with winners enjoying free registration, hotel stay and flights, as well as receive recognition. For more information on the sweepstakes, please click here. To submit your own comments to USDA, please visit by April 9, 2013.
