Paving the Way: Local Wellness Policy (LWP) Webinar Series

CEI and CDE’s Office of School Nutrition have partnered with CASB to provide resources to assist district and school staff with revisions to school local wellness policies (LWP).


LWP Webinar #1:
Paving the Way: Guidance on Updating Your Local Wellness Policy

In 2004, the Child Nutrition and Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Reauthorization Act required all school districts participating in the National School Lunch Program or other federal child nutrition programs to create local school wellness policies by school year 2006-07. In 2010, Congress passed the Healthy and Hunger-Free Kids Act and in 2016, the USDA adopted regulations that require school districts to revise their school wellness policies during this school year 2016-17. Join us to learn about the revisions you need to make in your local wellness policy by June 30, 2017 and discover resources that can help you meet the requirements of the final rule.
