Action Alert

It's time to ask our Senators to move the Child Nutrition Act Bill to the floor for a vote. Follow this link for a quick and easy email form:

This past week, the House held committee hearings on their Child Nutrition Act bill. Here are a couple of ideas that came out of those hearings:

Apparently, Congressman Kucinich has a bill HR4310 that will stop companies from writing off on their taxes dollars spent advertising junk food to kids -- and then use the money to improve school lunch. Sounds like crazy genius to me. Call Congress.

Our neighbor Congresswoman McCarty also mentioned her bill HR3625 The Food Marketing in Schools Assessment Act while much less radical also seems like a perfectly good idea. It would mainly study how food is currently marketed in schools.

Have you called Congress Today?
