SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Nov. 4, 2019 – Dairy Council of California, a nutrition education organization committed to elevating the health of children and families, welcomed four new members to its board of directors on November 1, 2019.
Appointed by Secretary Karen Ross of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the new members share a belief in the importance of nutrition education as well as a passion for milk and dairy foods and their contribution to public health.
Dairy Council of California’s newest board members are:
“We are honored to welcome Sherrie, Stacy, Tyler and Leaine to our board of directors,” said Tammy Anderson-Wise, CEO of Dairy Council of California. “The board’s invaluable guidance and support enables us to be leaders in nutrition education helping to inform millions of students and families on how to eat healthfully each year.”
Board members provide guidance, advising the organization on its strategic plan and program implementations, which include a wide range of nutrition education initiatives and outreach efforts.
Funded by the state’s dairy community, Dairy Council of California is celebrating a key milestone—its 100-year anniversary.
As the organization celebrates a century of elevating the health of children and families through the pursuit of lifelong healthy eating habits, it is evolving beyond nutrition resources to also focus on empowering teachers, health educators, stakeholders and community leaders to educate more people, more ways, to make an even bigger difference.
“Our board members are advocates of community health and strong supporters of the important work that we do,” continued Anderson-Wise. “With their support, Dairy Council of California can successfully continue its cause for the next 100 years.”
