The two issue briefs and legal notes published under the theme Off the Map: Extracurricular School Food provide an overview of and legal and policy approaches to improving the extracurricular school food areas of school stores, concessions, fundraisers, and open campus lunch. These extracurricular environments are unique parts of the school food environment, because they are often outside the control of school food services and often involve parties outside the school.
The issue briefs and legal notes broaden our work in Mapping School Food: A Policy Guide, which provides tools to navigate the legal and policy complexities of school food. While the issue briefs and legal notes can be read modularly as stand-alone sections or pieces, we do recommend utilizing the issue briefs, legal notes, and Mapping School Food: A Policy Guide in conjunction with one another.
