Back in January, ACL sent out a draft of the March activities for Nutrition Month. We asked for comments and feedback from stakeholders and ACL Regions. Based on the feedback we received, we decided to adjust the focus of our celebration. We have been advised the that the phrase, “National Nutrition Month” is a trademarked one. So during March, we will now celebrate the “OAA National Senior Nutrition Program”* instead. This program began in March of 1972, and has a rich and vibrant history across the Nation.
Going forward, March activities surrounding the topic of nutrition will be focused on Celebrating the National Senior Nutrition Program. This change will bring more awareness to older adult nutrition programs and the Older Adults Act. Activities will relate our nutrition network needs. This year’s theme and line up of activities will remain the same. We ask that you change the focus from “National Nutrition Month” to “Celebrating the National Senior Nutrition Program” – Please ensure all press releases, webinars, promotional fliers, etc. are corrected. ACL will be sending out promotional items throughout the month that you can use.
