Public Policy and Legislation
SNA of South Carolina takes an interest in and is very active in all matters of public policy and legislation that affects health and nutrition of children, especially as it pertains to child nutrition in school. We advocate measures that seek to improve the nutritional environment, operational regulations, program expenses, reimbursement rates and other important issues that affect school nutrition programs. We thank the Congress for continuing to support child nutrition and for recognizing that nutrition is linked to good health, academic achievement and national security.
