Nadia Johnson of Just Food sent us an Action Alert.

“Over the next few months, Congress will have the opportunity to make serious improvements to programs that feed millions of children each day. By passing a strong Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act (CNR) this year, Congress can take steps towards ending child hunger and to significantly improving the nutritional health and awareness of our children.  This is a once in five year opportunity. The 2009 Reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act can help us accomplish the following goals: achieve the Obama Administration’s goal of ending child hunger and food insecurity; ensure a generation of healthy, productive, nutritionally-aware children; reduce energy use and pollution; create jobs; and stimulate economic activity.

The NYC Alliance for CNR has prepared a comprehensive set of recommendations and is seeking your sign-on support!  Please contact Kristen Mancinelli (City Harvest) at 917.351.8706 or KMancinelli@cityharvest.org to sign-on, or visit the website to learn how you can join the campaign, mobilize your community, or propose your own recommendations to your elected officials.
