November 1, 2022 - USDA’s Team Nutrition initiative is excited to share that printed copies of the following resources are now available for program operators:

Now Available: Local School Wellness Policy Refresh! Infographic

This infographic encourages school districts to bring their school community together and refresh their Local School Wellness Policy efforts. Printed copies of this publication are now available in English and in Spanish. Schools participating in the National School Lunch Program can request free printed copies while supplies last.

How School Lunch Is Made and How You Can Help

Printed copies of “How School Lunch is Made and How You Can Help” are available for program operators as of October 3. Inspired by questions USDA receives from students about school lunch, this 12-page article provides information to students about what's in a school meal, who decides what's on the menu, and how students can influence what's offered. For more details, visit fns.usda.gov/tn/how-school-lunch-made-and-how-you-can-help.

Schools that participate in USDA Child Nutrition Programs can order Team Nutrition materials through our online order form at
