Michelle Obama http://nhpr.org en National Parks Get A Food Reboot http://nhpr.org/post/national-parks-get-food-reboot <p>The National Parks Service has introduced a major change-up to their fifty-nine park locations nationwide. In collaboration with Michelle Obama’s healthy diet initiative, visitors will have the option to choose from a bevy of healthy, fresh meals at each concessionary. The new program gives new variety to those hungry visitors with no other culinary options, and for the twenty-three million people who visit their locations annually, this health-conscious movement will result in the loss of billions of collective calories.<strong> Steve Vogel </strong>is a reporter for the national staff of the Washington Post where he frequently covers the federal government, and he joined us to tell us a little more about this change.</p><p> Tue, 25 Jun 2013 16:45:56 +0000 Virginia Prescott 29995 at http://nhpr.org National Parks Get A Food Reboot First Lady Campaigns In Laconia http://nhpr.org/post/first-lady-campaigns-laconia <p>The First Lady defended the president&#39;s health care law before a very receptive crowd in the Laconia Middle School Gym.
