CHILD NUTRITION REAUTHORZATION:
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION!

Call your member of Congress toll-free at (877) 698-8228 and urge him/her to pass the Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act (S. 3307) to help hungry Texas children.

BACKGROUND

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.
