I have found its pretty easy to find good information to explain the new Nutrition Facts label. I found it more difficult to find good information about the Supplement Facts label. So, if you are like me, you will like to find the paper in Nutrition Today by Leila Saldanha.
Changes that Matter to You. The food and Drug Administration's New Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels. Nutrition Today. 2018;53(6):254-260.

NO KID HUNGRY'S RURAL CHILD HUNGER SUMMIT
Columbus, OH | March 31 - April 1, 2020
Make plans to take part in this national event, which will bring together a wide range of stakeholders who are leading change in our collective efforts to reduce child hunger in rural communities. Objectives for the Summit are four-fold:
Explore the disparities driving child hunger in rural communities
Identify promising practices and policy levers that amplify the impact of existing nutrition assistance programs or reduce the incidence of rural child hunger
Celebrate innovations that are user-centered and evidence-informed
Foster connections between communities of research and practice
Attendees of the second Rural Child Hunger Summit will have increased opportunities for networking and peer learning. Our ultimate goal for this year’s Summit is to cultivate a thriving community of researchers, policymakers, and practitioners who are working together to end child hunger in the rural communities they live in or serve.

Hello, my name is Madeleine Aseltine and I'm a senior at the University of Connecticut majoring in Community Health and Wellness. For my senior thesis, I'd like to get the opinions of professionals in the field of nutrition on how they think certain food items should be ranked and assess whether or not this aligns with the standards of a new food ranking system developed for food pantries.
I'm reaching out to you today in hopes that you would take my survey and share your opinions. At the end of the survey, you will have the option to enter your name into a raffle to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Thank you for your help on my thesis project!

Please see the below and attached Request for Proposals, Advancing the Research on Produce Prescriptions, from the Rockefeller Foundation.
At The Rockefeller Foundation, we aim to create a food system that nourishes all people, sustains and regenerates the environment and enables the flourishing of culture and community. We are making new investments to promote dietary patterns high in protective foods – such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains – that are critical to nourishing a growing population in a sustainable manner. These foods, which protect us from disease when consumed at optimal quantities, are currently under-consumed.
In this regard, The Rockefeller Foundation Food Initiative is excited to announce the release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) to advance the public’s understanding of the impact of produce prescription programs, in collaboration with private and public healthcare payers and providers. The grant shall not exceed 18 months nor $1,000,000. Proposals are due March 26, 2020, with award decisions anticipated in May 2020. Please see attached RFP for details and address all questions to ProduceRx.RFP(a)rockfound.org<mailto:ProduceRx.RFP@rockfound.org>

tough on harmful advertising
Citing a tenfold rise in child obesity since 1975 – from 11 to 175 million
children –Professor Costello& maintained that “harmful advertising”
encouraged children to buy things that affected their development and
health, such as sugary snacks and drinks, fast food, alcohol and cigarettes.
And citing a huge expansion of vaping adverts, he added that in Brazil,
China, India and Nigeria,& two-thirds of five and six-year-olds could
identify at least one cigarette brand logo.
“We know that advertising preys on children, that in some countries they’re
seeing 30,000 TV adverts a year,” he insisted. “In America (the U.S.) for
example, a lot of children are seeing over four alcohol adverts a day.”
