What Can We Expect for Food Policy in 2017?
In 2017, the MomsRising Food Team is expecting quite a few changes. These changes will impact all of our lives. As a result, we want to be prepared, or as prepared as humaly possible.
Join #FoodFri on January 6, 2017, between 1-2pm EST, as @MomsRising chats with @CSPI about food policy in 2017. We'll discuss what to expect, reflect on recent food policy advances, as well as threats to current food policies. It will be an opportunity to discuss, support and defend federal, state, and local food and nutrition policies.
Join us! Bring your questions, resources and tips. Also, feel free to share how you will advocate for healthier policies. Together, we'll move mountains!

More about our #FoodFri Featured Co-Host(s):
Since 1971, CSPI has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science.
Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry’s powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.
