The deadline for Congress to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act (CNR) is now.
The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 expired on Sept. 30, and Congress has yet to pass a new version of this bill (also known as the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization, or CNR).
Make your voice heard: Join us in calling on Congress to pass a strong CNR that supports farm to school across the country! Make sure your legislators know that farm to school is a common sense approach to child nutrition that empowers kids and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
We’re joining together with our partners across the country and members like you during National Farm to School Month to celebrate the benefits of farm to school and tell Congress that it’s time to finish CNR and strengthen the USDA Farm to School Program.
