A hearing examined how rising food costs are making it harder for the nation’s child nutrition and school meal programs to provide healthy, low-cost meals for children. State and local nutrition program officials, a representative from the Grocery Manufacturers Association, and officials from the U.S. Department of Agriculture testified on the impact high food prices are having on their programs.

Topics included rising energy and commodity prices, increasing the federal government reimbursement rate for school lunch programs, and the lack of uniform national nutrition standards. close
