SNA has published its 2023 State Legislative Report, one of several SNA state advocacy resources intended to support grassroots efforts at the local level. This report is a summary of key school nutrition state legislation that changed status or was introduced between January 1 and December 31, 2023.

Across the nation, there’s a notable push towards ensuring every child receives a healthy school meal while at school:

  • 34 out of the 50 states have either implemented or introduced legislation.
  • SNA’s 2024 Position Paper urges Congress to offer healthy school meals for all students at no charge to support academic achievement, combat food insecurity and ease burdens on school nutrition staff so they can focus on serving students.
