New Calorie Count Rules Issued

Under long-awaited rules issued by the Food and Drug Administration, chain restaurants, vending machines, grocery stores, coffee shops and pizza places will soon have to display detailed calorie information on their menus.

“Americans eat and drink about onethird of their calories away from home, and people today expect clear information about the products they consume,” said “FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg. The new rules will help people make more informed choices about the food they eat.”

Chain restaurants and other establishments will have one year to comply with the regulations. Owners of vending machines will have two years to post calorie information for each item inside the machines on nearby placards, posters or digital displays.

City of Reno Senior Giving Tree program

The City of Reno and Washoe County Senior Services are partnering again this year on the Senior Giving Tree program, which assists seniors in the local community.

The donation drive ends on Monday, December 15. A list of needed items - such as jackets, sweat pannts, toiletries, and bus passes - is available at <Reno.gov/SeniorGiving. In addition, the City of Reno's holiday trees on the first and second floors of City Hall will be decorated with holiday tags that list the requested items. Donations will be accepted on the second floor of Reno City Hall, Evelyn Mount Northeast Community Center, and Neil Road Recreation Center.

Donated items will be delivered to Washoe County Senior Services at the end of the program and distributed to seniors in need. This is a great time to find out how to help seniors all year long. Seniors in Washoe County need food donations all year long. To find out how to donate nonperishable items, contact Washoe County Senior Services at (775) 328-2575.
