The Child Nutrition Forum
– a diverse group of hundreds of national organizations – urges Congress to make critical investments and improvements in the upcoming Child Nutrition Reauthorization that would increase and protect access to quality, nutritious foods in programs that serve children in child care, at home, during school and out of school. Such an investment is critical to improving the overall well‐being of millions of children in America.
