of hunger. The legislation that Congress is considering this year authorizes
several important anti-hunger programs, such as the National School
Lunch Program and the Summer Food Service Program. With improved access
and investment, we have the opportunity to reach more children in need.
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.
A full workshop on the Offering of Letters is scheduled in Albuquerque on Saturday, March 14, at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church, 9:30-Noon.
