Nearly 16 million U.S. children--one in five--live at risk 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.

About the date of this event: March 29 is a Sunday, not a Saturday. I looked it up, and it is on Sunday.
