Peterman featured on WPR

Printer-friendly version

Susan Peterman, the coordinator of school nutrition for the district, was featured this week in a broadcast that ran across the state on Wisconsin Public Radio.

Peterman was quoted twice in the story, "Federal Lunch Rules Will Affect Wisconsin Schools,'' which ran on Monday morning. Last week Congress rolled back portions of the Agriculture Department's proposed school lunch standards.

The federal government is still planning to make substantive changes to the National School Lunch Program next year. That's despite congressional action last week backed by the food industry that has put a hold on some of the USDA's proposed rules.

The entire story is 3 minutes and 36 seconds. You can read or listen to the story on the WPR website. A second story, which looks more closely at the USDA's goal to get students to eat more fruits and vegetables, is also on the website.

Peterman was interviewed for the story by WPR reporter Kristen Durst for 45 minutes in late September at the MHS cafeteria. At the time the focus of the story was buying locally and how school lunches have changed over the years.
