We are parents committed to helping Montgomery County Public Schools serve delicious, fresh, whole and nutrient-rich foods to the children in our community and reduce the availability of foods that are low in nutritional value. We seek to collaborate with MCPS and other community stakeholders, recognizing that wholesome food is an educational investment that leads to academic success, improved behavior, and better health outcomes. We believe that improving students' food options is a critical part of MCPS' commitment to support the whole child.
In April of 2013, RFKM and its members provided comments to the USDA on their proposed rules to govern competitive foods (a la carte and vending) sold in schools, which will take effect no sooner than the 2014-2015 school year. Click on the link on "comments" to read our submission.
