August Recess Visit: Congressman Randy Hultgren

 

You're the Cure hero, Heather Gavras is puzzled why some Members of Congress are trying to roll-back strong nutrition standards for school meals. On August 4th, she stopped by Congressman Randy Hultgren's office to deliver a special puzzle, which shows that nutritious foods "fit" into a successful school day for every child. Heather urged the Congressman to reauthorize the Heathy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, in order to protect the progress made since the law was enacted in 2010. Since passing the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act in 2010, kids are eating 16% more vegetables and 23% more fruit. It is vital that we protect the nutrition standards that are helping give our children the longer, healthier futures they deserve, by supporting the reauthorization of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

Thank you Heather for delivering this important message!
