A Conversation with Julie Paradis

January 15, 2011

In May 2009, Julie Paradis was appointed as Administrator for the Food and Nutrition Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Washington, D.C. The Food and Nutrition Service administers the food and nutrition assistance programs in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The agency provides children and needy families with better access to food and a more healthful diet through its programs and nutrition education efforts.

“For more than three decades, Paradis has worked to improve national food and nutrition programs and she will now be able to hit the ground running to enhance how these programs are delivered to the American people,” said Vilsack. “It is a great honor to welcome Julie back to USDA to work with the President and me to improve the health and nutrition of people across this great country.”
