Take Action to Stop Child Hunger in America
In 2010, Congress authorized, and President Obama signed The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. It makes available school and preschool healthy lunch programs, and enables other nutrition programs for low-income children. Some of the things the Act did and/or still does:
This summer, Congress should vote on reauthorization of this act (Child Nutrition Reauthorization), that works to keep every American child healthy and hungry free. Want to help? Join anti-hunger advocates and call your congressional representative. Let them know that our children are counting on them to act.
Who to call, and how?
“On September 30, the child nutrition bill will expire, and it’s time Congress got to work. As your constituent, I ask you to pass a strong child nutrition bill that invests in and improves child nutrition programs so that our nation’s kids have the fuel they need to grow up healthy and succeed.”
Help show our representatives that America wants to end child hunger once and for all.
