Virtual Town Halls Continue Into the New Year

We heard your feedback, and we will be moving the start times back to 2:00pm to hopefully accommodate everyone's schedules better. We will also be facilitating these town hall meetings in Zoom meetings instead of Zoom webinar so everyone can feel more like they are part of the conversation. Please come prepared to have your webcam on and you may be asked to unmute for these interactive events.
Register now for all three upcoming town halls!

Critical Bills Introduced: We Need Your Voice!

 
Two key school nutrition bills have been introduced, and we need your help to raise awareness and support! Safe and consistent student access to school meals this fall continues to be threatened by unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please take a few minutes to write your legislators urging them to support these bills.

The Pandemic Child Hunger Prevention Act, introduced by House Committee on Education and Labor Chairman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott (VA-03), would guarantee every child has safe access to healthy school meals during SY 2020-21. With a multitude of families newly-eligible for free and reduced-price meals, offering meals to all students at no charge spares overburdened schools the massive task of distributing and processing meal applications and reduces the stigma for children who depend on free meals.

TAKE ACTION NOW!

H.R. 7764, The Child Nutrition Relief Act of 2020, introduced by U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez (NY-7) would allow USDA to extend all COVID-19 school feeding waivers through June 30, 2021. Extending these waivers will allow school meal programs to seamlessly continue grab-and-go meal pick up for distance learners, serve meals to students in the classroom or adjust meal service in the event of a sudden COVID-19 school closure.

TAKE ACTION NOW!
