  • Today’s announcement of $80 million for school food equipment grants is one of many steps @USDA is taking to further the Biden-Harris National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. We are committed to ending hunger and improving nutrition and health.
  • Today, I’m announcing $80 million in grants for schools to purchase new equipment that will allow them to continue serving nutritious meals. Thanks to @POTUS‘s American Rescue Plan, which added $50 million to this program, more schools will receive grants.

@US_FDA

  • We are partnering with @NOAA, @USDA & @EPA on this study, which supports the goals of the FDA’s Closer to Zero Action Plan for reducing the exposure of babies and young children to mercury, arsenic, lead and cadmium from foods.
  • Today, we announced the launch of an independent study by @theNASEM on the role of seafood consumption in child growth and development.
