Federal Guideline Advisory Committee to Meet Online

03/11/2020

The Fifth meeting of the 2020 Guideline Advisory Committee scheduled for mid-March in Washington, DC will move to an online format.  Travel restrictions imposed to prevent transmission of COVID-19 coupled with restraints imposed by universities on employees motivated the discussion.

 

Each of the subcommittees will submit a report to be available on <www.dietaryguidelines.gov>.

 

The USDA Food and Nutrition Service administers fifteen nutrition-assistance programs to ensure that children, individuals and families with low incomes have an adequate diet.

 

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans is developed jointly by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service and The Department of Health and Human Services and encompasses promotion of adequate diets, disease prevention and promotion of health.
