On Wednesday July 2nd AHA Advocates Brett Stone and Carole Garner met with Senator Mark Pryor’s staff to discuss the Child Nutrition Act. The Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act is currently making its way through Congress and would help keep strong nutrition standards for school meals.
Senator Pryor sits on the important Senate Appropriation committee that has influence over this bill. In May his committee approved the Child Nutrition Act that included stronger standards than the House of Representatives version.
We thanked Senator Pryor for keeping the Child Nutrition Act strong, and encouraged him to not accept any weakening amendments as the bill moves towards final passage.
