Strengthen the Summer Food and Afterschool Meals programs in Child Nutrition Reauthorization
Hunger doesn't take a summer vacation. When the long summer recess begins, millions of low-income children lose access to the school breakfasts and lunches they rely on during the school year. The Summer Nutrition Programs are designed to fill that gap – and we need your help to make these good programs better. Email your Members of Congress and ask them to co-sponsor the bipartisan Summer Meals Act of 2015 (S. 613 / H.R. 1728), introduced by Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Representatives Don Young (R-AK) and Rick Larsen (D-WA). The bill would strengthen, protect, and expand access to the Summer Nutrition Programs. It would make long-overdue improvements that would enable the Summer Nutrition Programs to serve even more children.
