What is DC Voices for MEAL Choices?

DC Voices for MEAL Choices is a committee of the Metropolitan Washington Public Health Association that is advocating for passage of the DC MEAL Act. We believe that DC residents have a right to know how many calories they are eating when they eat at restaurants. Join us in supporting this cause!

    What is the DC MEAL Act?

    The DCMEAL Act stands for the DC MenuEducation and Labeling Act. It was introduced into the DC City Council in 2007, but has not yet been passed. This act would require restaurants with 10 or more locations nationwide to post nutrition information on their menus and/or menuboards.
