Local Wellness Policies

Regulation & Guidance


The Healthy, Hunger‐Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA) requires all local educational agencies participating in federal Child Nutrition programs to establish and implement, for all schools under its jurisdiction, local school wellness policies that meet minimum standards designed to promote sound nutrition, student health, reduce childhood obesity, and provide transparency to the public on the school nutrition environment. This USDA website is dedicated to helping local educational agencies find the resources they need to meet the wellness policy requirements.
