Critical Final Push for Child Nutrition Bill
The child nutrition reauthorization (CNR) bill, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (S. 3307), is expected to go to the House floor for a vote on Wednesday. This critical bill will increase funding for the federal child nutrition programs by $4.5 billion over the next ten years-the largest increase these programs have ever seen. However, it remains uncertain whether the bill has the votes necessary for passage. Your help is needed today to ensure that it does.
This is our last chance to get a CNR bill this year. Please take these two steps right now to make sure all children have the healthy start they need:
- Call your House members. Please deliver this simple message: Congress must not adjourn without passing the child nutrition bill. Please vote yes on the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (S. 3307). Contact information for the New England delegation is available here.
- Forward this alert. Please share this alert with partner organizations and colleagues and ask them to call Congress as well.
We have one last chance to make our voices heard. You can help push the child nutrition bill over the goal line by calling your representatives today!
