- Tell U.S. Congress
The Child Nutrition Act can only be reauthorized once every five years.
the Child Nutrition Re-authorization could not come at a more critical time.
At least 128 national organizations concerned with the health and welfare of children are joining together to call on Congress to pass a strong child nutrition bill (S. 3307/H.R. 5504). This legislation would strengthen programs like school meals, WIC (supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children), and summer and after-school feeding programs.
If a Child Nutrition Bill is not passed millions of children will miss out on improved access to the nutritious food they need to learn and grow.
Tell Congress that America’s children can’t wait — pass stronger nutrition legislation now.
