The William F. Goodling Nutrition Reauthorization Act had many impacts on many schools and after-school community programs. This law expanded services and the regulations of the programs which all participants must now follow. The law also had large impacts on individuals that were not eligible for the programs but are now covered. These individuals now have the right to obtain the proper nutrition to lead a healthy lifestyle.
This act was signed into law by President Clinton in 1998 to ensure children and young adults received proper nutrition from the federal government. The law expanded children's access to food assistance programs and created new rules and regulations for the management and operations of these programs. It also removed many barriers for some organizations not able to participate in the nutrition programs.
