(from the Oregon Food Bank)
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (S. 3307) will get a vote in the House of Representatives tomorrow, but we are not yet sure that we have enough votes for passage.
This bill passed the Senate with unanimous support from Democrats and Republicans. It is, without a doubt, our best chance to pass a Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill that improves child nutrition programs like school meals, summer meals, and WIC. These programs improve the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of children across America and are an essential investment in the future of our nation and its people.
The next 24 hours might prove to be the most important of our two year long campaign to improve child nutrition programs. Many of you have contacted your legislators about this issue already, but they need to hear from you again now. Call or e-mail your Representative with this simple message: Congress must not adjourn without passing the child nutrition bill. Please pass the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (S. 3307) and fix the SNAP cut through another vehicle. I support this bill because [insert your reason here].
