In light of that, Viatorians rely on such partners as the Washington-based Food, Research and Action Center, which provides action items on federal nutrition programs, and federal food and nutrition policy.

In their latest online newsletter, they provide peer-reviewed studies on a variety of topics, including the impact of breakfast at school on body mass index, association between food insecurity and obesity, and environmental influences on obesity.
