Mar 1, 2017 Press Release
(Washington, DC) – Today, Northern California Representatives Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) and John Garamendi (D-CA) introduced H.R. 1241, the “American Food for American Schools” Act. The bill is designed to bring more accountability and transparency to the “Buy American” provisions of the National School Lunch Act. Under current law, school districts are required to use domestically-sourced products for school lunches wherever practical but may request a waiver from the Department of Agriculture if the cost of domestic sourcing is significantly higher. Unfortunately, these waiver requests do not always occur. This bipartisan legislation would legally require school nutrition providers to seek a waiver in order to use foreign commodities and products. Additionally, waiver requests must be made available to the public to ensure accountability and provide American farmers and food providers an opportunity to seek out school districts that need affordable American-grown food.
