Action Needed - Sign On to Child Nutrition Letter
NEACH is co-sponsoring a sign-on letter with the New England Consortium (NEC) that urges Congress to act swiftly and pass a strong child nutrition reauthorization (CNR) bill. The letter asks the New England delegation in the House of Representatives to work with leadership to ensure that a final bill is passed and ready for the President's signature by September 30, 2010, when the current law expires. The federal nutrition programs that will be reauthorized through this legislation have the potential to promote childhood health, reduce childhood hunger and obesity, and combat the effects of child poverty by greatly improving access to existing child nutrition programs.
