Call Congress today: Child Nutrition must pass

November 18, 2010 at 7:14 am 1 comment

Time is running out. The Senate passed its child nutrition bill in early August, and the House must act before December 3.

Heartbreaking new data released this week shows that nearly one in four children in our country — that’s more than 17 million kids — live in families that struggle to put food on the table.

It’s now up to Congress to make a difference in the lives of these children, but time is running out.

Hungry kids can’t wait any longer for improvements to breakfast, after school, and summer meal programs.

Call Rep. David Wu today at 800-826-3688! Congress needs to hear from you that hungry kids and families need their help. The House must pass child nutrition legislation.

The next few days are critical. This is Congress’ last chance to pass child nutrition legislation before it adjourns its 111th session.

Message and Key Points
– Pass S. 3307, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.

– The need for strong, accessible child nutrition programs has never been greater.

– Nearly one in seven children in Oregon struggle to put food on the table.
