Join national food policy tweet chat

Please join @MomsRising and @CSPI on Friday, Dec. 5, 11 a.m. to noon Mountain Time for a #FoodFri tweetchat to discuss what’s up with school food. With Congress poised to wrap up the appropriations process, healthy school food is threatened once again. This tweetchat will be an opportunity to share successes, demonstrate support for healthy school lunches, and to communicate with Congress.

Here are a few model tweets to get involved:
· Please join us to discuss the threats to healthy school lunches and what you can do to help #FoodFri, Dec 5th, 1pm EST
· Concerned that school food has become a political football? Please join us to talk about how to help #FoodFri, Dec 5th, 1pm EST
· School lunch is getting better but it is threatened. Join us to discuss and respond #FoodFri, Dec 5th, 1pm EST

If you'd like to prepare some tweets in advance, below are some questions/topics we plan to discuss:

Why is the National School Lunch Program important?

School foods are improving. What’s school lunch like these days?

How have school lunches improved?

What’s the biggest threat to the progress on school foods?

What do school foods professionals think about the nutrition standards?

How can we support schools that are serving healthy meals?

Why has school lunch become a political issue? #FoodFri
