Take Action Now: Write your members of Congress and urge them to pass a strong child nutrition bill!
In 2008, nearly 25% of kids lived in homes struggling with hunger. Today, approximately 33% are currently obese or overweight. These statistics make it crucial for Congress to reauthorize the nation’s two cornerstone child nutrition laws under the Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill.
Child nutrition programs provide many low-income kids with their only fully balanced, or sometimes only, meal each day.
If Congress does not reauthorize child nutrition laws this summer, millions of kids could miss out on improved access to food. Write Congress now to urge members to pass this legislation!
