CNR: Putting the Act into Action

School Lunch(From our friends at FRAC)

Making Child Nutrition Reauthorization Work for Your Community

First Webinar – “What You Need to Know Now”
Friday, December 17, 2010
1 – 2 p.m. EST

FRAC is excited to launch a series of Webinars, titled CNR: Putting the Act into Action, that will examine the provisions of the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act that the President signed yesterday and steps to make the provisions of the Act a success.

Join us for the first Webinar in this series, “What You Need to Know NOW,” on Friday, December 17 from 1 – 2 p.m. EST. In this Webinar, speakers will provide an overview of The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (Child Nutrition Reauthorization), outline improvements to the child nutrition programs, and highlight parts that are immediately in effect or need immediate work by stakeholders.

During the calls, you will:
  • Get the information you need to move implementation forward in the best possible way and move it quickly in your state and community.
  • Develop a checklist of things to do.
Please share this invitation with your colleagues and networks. Many changes to child nutrition programs with positive potential for children are coming; together, we can ensure they are implemented quickly and robustly.

Future calls in the CNR: Putting the Act into Action series will delve into the details of the new provisions by program, including the expansion of the Afterschool Meal Program, new provisions for child care food program access and nutrition improvements, summer food provisions and the need to ratchet up for summer 2011, changes to school meal eligibility and certification processes, and the school nutrition environment.

Don’t delay! Register for the December 17th call today.

Register Now for National Audio Conferences on Job Scheduling

From our friends at CLASP Register now for three national audio conferences on job scheduling! Job schedules matter in many ways. For all workers, it helps when an employer is responsive to a request for a needed schedule change. And far too many workers have volatile and potentially destabilizing schedules. If you don't know when you are supposed to be at work until the last minute, how do you arrange child care or transportation? If your total hours fluctuate from week to week, how do you budget for rent and food? To address these issues and emerging policy opportunities, the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) is hosting and sponsoring three Job Schedules Matter audio conferences.

The conferences, which are co-sponsored by the Center for Popular Democracy and the National Women's Law Center, will include comments from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressman George Miller on why they introduced the Schedules that Work Act. You'll also hear from workers about th…
