If you’re planning on making a statement at the City Council hearing tomorrow about DOE school food policies, here are some important details for you to know about.
– You need to sign up before the hearing gets underway at 1pm. Bring identification and allot some extra time to get through security.
– You will have 3 minutes to give your testimony. If you run over 3 minutes, you will most likely be cut off.
– Please bring 20 copies of your written statement double-sided to the hearing so it can be distributed among City Council members
I know the middle of the afternoon is an inconvenient time for parents (to say the least!), but this hearing is a tremendous and unique opportunity for parents to finally be part of the discussion about the food that is served to our children in school, including the junk food that is marketed and sold to our children in school vending machines.
I hope you will join us in voicing your concerns and changes you’d like to see. The hearing will begin at 1pm at 250 Broadway (at Murray Street), 14th floor hearing room.
Elizabeth and Anisa
