Bread for the World's 2015 Offering of Letters urges Congress to renew our federal government’s major child nutrition programs, including those for school meals, summer feeding, and the WIC nutrition program for pregnant and new mothers along with their small children.
Every five years, Congress must re-authorize the law that funds these programs, which have helped millions of children over the decades. Thanks to the leadership of Bread for the World and its church partners, the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act expanded and improved these programs.
Now is the time to renew these national nutrition programs. Be part of Bread’s 2015 Offering of Letters by taking a few minutes to write letters to your members of Congress. Barbie Izquierdo, who appeared in the documentary A Place at the Table, wrote a great piece in the Bread blog.
We are planning a workshop in Albuquerque about this letter-writing campaign sometime in mid-March. Stay tuned for details.
