The Issaquah School District’s nutrition advisory committee will host a public meeting regarding new U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for student nutrition and activities.

The meeting will be from 3-5 p.m. April 30 at the district’s administration building, 565 N.W. Holly St. The committee will listen to public comments for 10-20 minutes at the beginning. The public is invited to stay and listen to the remainder of the meeting.

The committee is looking to update the district’s wellness policy by incorporating new USDA guidelines on food and beverages in schools, and also establish standards for physical activity and nutrition education for all students.
