Members Discuss Nutrition Policy with Congress: You Can, Too

Thanks to the Academy's Political Action Committee, California Dietetic Association members recently attended a fundraiser for one of their members in Congress, Rep. Doris Matsui.

CDA members Sue Foerster, MPH, RD, and Judy Gould, MA, MS, RD, spoke with Rep. Matsui and her staff about critical nutrition legislation, including the Farm Bill, which provides nutrition education for SNAP participants and the Older American's Act, which supports essential senior nutrition programs.

Gould was complimentary of Foerster, a member of the Legislative and Public Policy Committee, who she deemed as "highly knowledgeable about pertinent nutrition policy due to her recent attendance at the Academy's Public Policy Workshop." Rep. Matsui encouraged members to schedule a meeting with her office to further discuss these key nutrition issues.

Foerster and Gould are not done yet. They plan to work with ANDPAC on more opportunities to speak with other California representatives to discuss the importance of nutrition programs and services. SNAP-Ed and the Older Americans Act translate into jobs for dietitians not only in California, but nationwide.

You can meet with your members of Congress, too. Complete an ANDPAC Contribution Request Form and ANDPAC will sponsor you to attend a local fundraiser with your representatives. It's advocacy made easy.

Photos from the Matsui event and others are on ANDPAC's Facebook page.
