This past month seemed extremely busy for the CACFP Forum Board Members. Besides their monthly board meeting, committee meetings on policy, membership and the business of CACFP, the Forum board members had some rather special activities going on. Let's take a peek at a few things that are going on with some of our CACFP Forum colleagues.
Congratulations goes out to CACFP Forum Board Member Donna Pomerson and Learning Care Group! Not only are they one of 5 finalists for the Partnership for a Healthier America Partner of the Year award, they announced new commitments at the Building A Healthier Future PHA conference. Over the next three years, they will continue to improve their menus, build on their physical activity curriculum, and implement gardening programs in the majority of their centers across the nation. Donna - thank you for continuing to make the healthy choice.... the easy choice for children across the country! And... she presented on the same stage as Michelle Obama, and that's pretty darn cool! #PHA
