The current House of Representatives will meet only briefly between now and the end of the year. There are several pending items and not enough time to address them all. We need your help RIGHT NOW to ensure that Child Nutrition Reauthorization is passed when it  comes up for a vote, most likely in the week after Thanksgiving!

Please contact your Congressperson ASAP (Click here for name and contact information). Urge them to pass Senate Bill 3307 which does the following:

  • Expands the Afterschool Meal Program across the country
  • Contains improvements to certifying kids for school meals
  • Creates new paperless options for universal meals
  • Enhances the nutritional quality of school meals

At the same time, urge your Representative to support legislation that restores the future cuts to SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) targeted by the Senate to pay for Child Nutrition Reauthorization.

Your voice makes the difference. Use it to demand that we feed our children – the nation’s most precious resource. The public outcry will be heard if we all join in the fight.
