We actively advocate across a diverse spectrum of food nutrition issues, including federal programs and services designed to provide families, mothers, infants and school children with access to affordable and nutritious food options. To help consumers choose foods that meet their family’s needs and overcome barriers to healthy eating, federal nutrition incentive programs should include frozen foods.
Current Key Issues
Supporting All Healthy Options When Purchasing Produce (SHOPP) Act: We support the SHOPP Act, which will make healthy eating easier for many families through the inclusion of frozen fruits and vegetables in the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program (GusNIP) and Produce Prescription Program.
Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC): We support the expansion of acceptable formats of fruits and vegetables in WIC and requiring all state agencies to include frozen fruits and vegetables in their WIC programs.
Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP): We advocate for the preservation of SNAP participants’ food purchasing choices and seek to ensure that consumers continue to have the option of buying frozen foods that are easy to prepare, affordable and reduce food waste.
