As legislation to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act moves through Congress, National Journal has released a video news story featuring the financial challenges faced by school nutrition programs and their efforts to improve the quality and nutrition of school meals.
National Journal Group is a leading source of nonpartisan reporting on policy and politics. Their reports are read by decision makers and policy influencers, including Members of Congress, the Administration and their staff.
SNA encourages members to send an Action Alert to your Members of Congress in support of Child Nutrition Reauthorization and increased funding for school meals. The Action Alert now includes a link to the National Journal report, offering an additional tool to educate policy makers on the successes and financial constraints of school nutrition programs.
SNA members should also consider sharing the video with other members of your community who need to know the importance of Child Nutrition Reauthorization to school meals programs.
