AASA Supports Noem School Nutrition Bill

Date: December 06, 2013

Earlier this week, Representative Kristi Noem introduced the Reducing Federal Mandates on School Lunch Act. AASA was pleased to support the legislation, along with the Council of Great City Schools.

The bill makes permanent the USDA's temporary lift on the meat/grains cap, allowing schools to serve meats/grains in a more flexible manner while still complying with calorie limits. The bill also returns flexibility to administrators for some of the rules that have increased costs for school districts.
