The United States Congress has started to work on a child nutrition reauthorization (CNR)! This is a big deal and an effort that could determine how healthy the foods we serve our kids in school will be and how many children can access those meals. This is also a long time coming as it has been 12 years since Congress last passed a CNR. In those 12 years, we’ve learned time and time again that school meals are critically important to millions of children and families across the country. For many, it is a lifeline towards combatting food insecurity and is the largest source of heart healthy fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
With your help we can do even better by applying science-based nutrition standards and increasing access to school meals! Click this link to call your Senators today!
