Food Policy for Breakfast: Universal School Meals: A Research Agenda

January 26, 2016 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM


Food Policy for Breakfast: Universal School Meals: A Research Agenda

part of our spring 2016 Food Policy for Breakfast Seminar Series

In September, 2014, New York City inaugurated a new policy of universal free lunch in its stand alone middle schools. After a year and a half of experience with the universal approach, what do we know, and what do we want to know? A panel of researchers, educators and advocates will consider what we have learned thus far, and what else we need to know about free lunch at school.

Panelists (additional panelists TBA)

Liz Accles, Executive Director, Community Food Advocates

Renata Peralta, Ph.D. Candidate in Politics and Education program, Teachers College, Columbia University

Randi Herman, Council of School Supervisors and Administrators NYC

Moderated by Jan Poppendieck, Professor Emerita of Sociology, Policy Director, NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College
