Designed for people in the produce industry, educators, and public health professionals, the toolkit has sample “tweets” and Facebook posts for use. The work of squeezing a message into Twitter’s 140-character limit is already done. Here’s a sample tweet: “Forget the measuring cups — new USDA guidelines show making half-your-plate fruits & veggies: http://tinyurl.com/bmodry.”
The foundation also encourages people to follow its Facebook or Twitter accounts, or subscribe to its e-newsletter, for the latest efforts to spread the half-your-plate message.
