On September 30, the child nutrition bill will expire, and we need your help to convince Congress to get to work and make passing a strong child nutrition bill that invests in our nation’s children a priority.
Help us spur Congress to action and strengthen child nutrition programs by calling today and spreading the word through social media.
Calling Congress is easy. Here’s how:
- Dial our toll free number, (888) 398-8702, listen to the pre-recorded message and enter your zip code when prompted.
- Once you are connected to your House member, state that you are a constituent, and give your name and the town you are calling from.
- Let them know you are calling about Child Nutrition Reauthorization and deliver this important message:
As your constituent and supporter of the St. Louis Area Foodbank, I’m calling you today about the Child Nutrition Reauthorization. Too many kids in our community are not getting the food they need, particularly during the summer months when school is out.
As my Member of Congress, you can do something about it. I urge you to pass a strong child nutrition bill that provides more options to get food to kids that need our help by providing flexibility in operating the Summer Food Service Program and streamlining program requirements for providers that operate both afterschool and summer meal programs.
- Be sure to dial back in and speak with both of your senators and your representative.
