Take Action: Child Nutrition Reauthorization needs your help today.
November 23, 2010 § Leave a comment
Child hunger is a huge problem nationwide and in Central Texas. Among national child hunger rates, Texas ranks second. We have an opportunity to intervene and urge our members of the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act (S. 3307). If passed, this bill will bring millions of new federal dollars to children at risk of hunger in Texas, institute new nutrition standards to fight child obesity, and significantly increase funding for after-school programs such as Kids Cafe.
Now is our chance! If the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act does not pass this year, it may not be addressed for several years.
Please call your member of Congress and urge him/her to pass the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act (S. 3307) to help hungry Texas children. Feeding America has a toll-free number that provides talking points and will connect you to your member of Congress. The number is (877) 698-8228.
