As we swing into a new year, we’re swinging into a new schedule with PEP Talks. We listened to feedback from you, our loyal listeners, and change is happening! Starting now and moving forward in 2016, PEP Talks will now be in a bi-weekly format, meaning you get double the amount of PEP in your life! So be sure to check back in every other week (subscribe on either iTunes or Stitcher and we promise you won’t miss a thing!) for brand new topics, hilarious (yet slightly off-topic) conversations, and educational dialogue about the school nutrition industry.


Stop by to talk Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA). We dissect a recent study suggesting the program’s success and present facts on both sides of the argument to let you decide. Ever wonder if all Californians are really vegan? Hear Stephen’s take and his opinion of apples and bananas. It’s riveting stuff!

We hope you listen enjoy listening to PEP Talks Episode #005: HHFKA!
