Let’s show Congress that it’s time to end child hunger in America.
Now that August recess is over, Congress heads back to Washington with a big to-do list, including Child Nutrition Reauthorization. The current bill expires on September 30, and we need to make sure Congress knows that passing a strong child nutrition bill that strengthens programs and reaches more kids must be a priority.
You can help by participating in our national call in day and joining thousands of supporters from across the country to urge Congress to pass a strong child nutrition bill and ensure no child in America goes hungry.
