AKSNA Advocates to End P-EBT, Redirect Funds to Established Child Nutrition Programs

Public Policy & Legislation

Today, AKSNA sent a letter to Senator John Boozman, the Ranking member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, advocating that P-EBT be eliminated and funds redirected toward already established Child Nutrition Programs that have been proven to provide a consistent and reliable source of nutrition for Alaska and America’s schoolchildren.

AKSNA Advocates for Reasonable Nutritional Standards

AKSNA’s Public Policy and Legislation Committee recently sent a letter to the USDA regarding Transitional Standards for Milk, Whole Grain, and Sodium. In this letter, AKSNA joins with SNA in advocating for the tremendous nutritional value that is already present in each of the nearly 73,000 breakfast and lunches served throughout our great state. AKSNA advocated for more reasonable implementation including delayed and voluntary standards that include a cash-based performance incentive in lieu of mandatory standards.
