This urgent alert just came out from Slow Food USA about the Child Nutrition Act:
The version that passed in the Senate included a bunch of our priorities – more funding for healthier meals, regulations to kick junk food out of school vending machines, and $50 million for Farm to School programs, but it also makes cuts to food stamps in order to pay for them.
The next step is for the House to pass the bill, maybe when they return from break in September. Or maybe they will pass it tomorrow before they head out.
This is why we need your urgent help.
You can ask your Representative to vote for the Child Nutriton Act using Slow Food’s handy online form.
