Golzynski-Testifies Today, March 25th, the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry held a hearing on "Child Nutrition Reauthorization: Healthy Meals and Healthy Futures." Chairwoman Stabenow (D-MI) and Ranking Member Boozman (R-AR) called upon several witnesses, including SNA Public Policy and Legislation Committee members, Jessica Gould, RD, SNS, the Director of Nutrition Services at Littleton Public Schools in Colorado; and Diane Golzynski, PhD, RDN, the Director for the Office of Health and Nutrition Services for Michigan's Department of Education. 

During her testimony, Dr. Golzynski stated, "No child should experience hunger, and it is our responsibility as the adults that care for them to design and build the strongest safety net possible."   Jessica Gould also outlined the critical need for meal pattern flexibility. "Operators across the country are committed to serving our students nutritious, well-balanced meals, but meeting Tier 2 — and very soon Tier 3 — sodium poses serious concerns for our programs and ultimately students," she stated.
