The Federal Child Nutrition Commodity Program

California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA) and Samuels & Associates (S&A) conducted a study to determine the impact of the federal child nutrition commodity program on the nutritional quality of school meals, particularly those served in California. About 3 million California students participate daily in the National School Lunch Program, and 1 million participate in the School Breakfast Program, many of whom have been identified as obese and overweight and at risk of severe (and costly) medical consequences.
