$9.4 billion in cuts to child nutrition programs is on the line. Do you want your kids to lose their school lunch program? Please check out the American School Food Service Association site and send emails to your Senators and House Representatives.

http://www.asfsa.org/newsroom/sfsnews/cnfundingreps.asp

ASFSA has provided letters that you can just sign and email. The first one that you will see is Fully Fund Child Nutrition. After you send that letter a screen will come up with 3 options...the previously mentioned issue...Child Nutrition Reauthorization(which deals with the Free and Reduced program)and Compose your own letter.

Our school lunch and breakfast programs depend on State and Federal Government funding including free or reduced cost Government commodities.

I usually lurk around the boards but this issue is too important not to post about.

This doesn't surprise me, what else are they going to take way! You already have to spend a small fortune just so your child can attend their first day of class! Glad I went to school when I did!
