Speak Out For Child Nutrition

On September 30 the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 is set to expire and we need your help! Child Nutrition Reauthorization determines funding for child nutrition programs and ensures that millions of children in need have access to meals. With school out of session, two bills in particular can help protect our youth from food insecurity this summer - the Summer Meals Act of 2015 and the Stop Child Summer Hunger Act of 2015. Join CUMAC and anti-hunger organizations nationwide on Tuesday, June 23 for Child Nutrition Reauthorization Call In Day! Call your local representatives tomorrow and urge them to invest in the Summer Meals and Stop Child Summer Hunger bills. A few minutes of your time can help keep our youth hunger-free this summer. Act now! 
    Take Action 
1 in 5 kids will face hunger this summer. Share your voice to support child nutrition programs!
Call your local representative on Tuesday by using Feeding America's toll free hotline (888-398-8702) and urge them to: 
  • Support the Summer Meals Act and the Stop Child Summer Hunger Act
  • Invest in and strengthen child nutrition programs
