Local Wellness Policies

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) outlines new requirements for Local Wellness Policies in schools. As written in the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, all schools that participate in the National School Lunch and/or Breakfast Program must have a Local Wellness Policy in place. The HHFKA strengthens the requirements of Local Wellness Policies and Healthy Communities of the Capital Area is here to help you assess yours to ensure it meets the requirements. Contact Renee Page at rpage@mcd.org or 207-588-5020 to find out how HCCA can help. Go to Data & Resources for wellness policy resources.
