New Mexico Congressional Delegation Comes Through on Child Nutrition

Last week, Bread for the World asked us to call our members of the House to urge them to sign a Dear Colleague letter in support of increased funding for an additional $1 billion in funding for the Child Nutrition Act.  This is a vehicle to support school lunches, school breakfasts, summer feeding programs, and the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program.

All three members of our House members, Reps. Martin Heinrich, Harry Teague and Ben Ray Lujan, signed the letter circulated by Reps. Joanne Emerson of Missouri and James McGovern of Massachusetts.  We Thank You!

And thanks to everyone in New Mexico who took time to make the call.

Bread reached the target of 218 signatures, plus one.  Click here to see list and to read more background on this issue.
