LIVE: 1:00 PM EDT Wednesday, May 24, 2023
Since federal waivers for meals at no cost have expired, many states have taken legislative and non-legislative measures to ensure children continue to benefit from healthy school meals. State advocates play an integral role in educating legislators, stakeholders and the public about the importance of expanding school meal programs. Every state is different and the strategies that succeed in one may not work in another. In this webinar, advocates from California, Colorado, Maine, Maryland and Pennsylvania will come together to share successful strategies and lessons learned from their advocacy efforts in the various political realities of their communities.
Please note this webinar begins at 1 pm ET!
1.Learn advocacy strategies to advocate for school nutrition programs on the state level and how to apply them to your advocacy plans
2.Learn how effective coalition building can help you advance your legislative goals
3.Learn about non legislative measures as options to expand access to school meal programs
