AR Advocates Visit Congressional Offices, Promote Healthy School Meals

On Wednesday, August 13th You’re the Cure advocates Wonder Lowe and Carole Garner utilized the August Congressional break to advocate for reauthorization of the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.”

They visited district offices to share the message that new nutrition standards ARE working and should not be delayed or weakened. Together, they visited the offices of Senator Mark Pryor and Congressman John Boozman.

The team delivered the message to Congress that healthy school meals ‘fit’ into a successful school day for kids- and that we’re ‘puzzled’ by efforts to weaken or delay the important nutrition standards.  To help make this point, the advocates delivered a lunch bag of puzzle pieces, 4 of which fit together to display a healthy school meal and 1 showing unhealthy food that doesn’t fit.
