    Getting school lunches to awesome
    Dear Friend,

    We’ve been talking about about the sad state of school lunches for years. But now, we finally have a chance to start making school lunches more nutritious and more accessible. The U.S. Senate recently passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which is an update of the Child Nutrition Act. And now, to get this bill to the finish line, the U.S. House is our next step, and we have to act today.

    The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, S. 3307 needs to pass before Congress finally adjourns. Hungry kids can't wait.

    *Tell to your Representative pass a good child nutrition bill that improves access to healthy food and doesn't significantly cut future food-stamp benefits for families (it only takes two minutes I promise):

    The U.S. House is now debating whether to update and re-authorize the Child Nutrition Act with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. It's a comprehensive update that would fund and update programs like the National School Lunch Program and WIC, which provides access to nutritious foods to low-income pregnant women, new mothers, infants and young children, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) which helps ensure kids in child care get access to nutritious meals and snacks. In today's economy more and more families rely on school lunches, WIC, and CACFP as their only source of meals.

    Nearly 1 in 4 of U.S. children stand on the brink of hunger in the U.S. right now AND 1 in 3 children are obese or overweight. Children can't afford for Congress to wait to update the Child Nutrition Act.

    The proposed update to the Child Nutrition Act would make historic improvements in school and child nutrition that will help address both childhood hunger and obesity in our nation. Don't delay, tell your Representative to act today!

    Together we are a powerful voice for children and families.
