Dear Supporter,

The United States Senate may begin moving quickly on the Child Nutrition Reauthorization, which provides the funding for a host of programs that combat childhood hunger. One provision would give children in child care for eight or more hours a day an additional snack. This is our best chance to make needed improvements to the Child Adult Care Food Program.

So please take a minute to send a message, tweet or make a call. It’s easy.

Take action now to feed small children.

What is Child Nutrition Reauthorization?
The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act sets the rules for and funds all of the federal child nutrition programs, including the School Breakfast, National School Lunch, Child and Adult Care Food, Summer Food Service, the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Programs and Woman Infant and Children nutrition program. These programs feed millions of children across the country, ensuring they have access to healthy and nutritious foods where they live, play and learn. Congress reviews these programs through the “reauthorization” process.

Please take a minute now to help combat childhood hunger.
