School Lunch Program Expiring -- Tell Congress ACT NOW!
No more delays. America's children deserve healthier lunches and students with celiac disease need access to gluten-free meals. Tell Congress to pass S. 3307, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act TODAY!

Here is the suggested text for your Congressperson

In just a few days the federal child nutrition programs are set to expire. I ask you to consider the needs of America's school children and pass S. 3307, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act without further delay.

This critically important legislation increases meal reimbursement rates which will help schools improve meals options and serve more fruit, vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy products. The additional funding will also help schools meet the needs of students with celiac disease who must adhere to medically prescribed gluten-free diet.

In this tough economy, American families are struggling to make ends meet and depend on the school lunch, breakfast, and other child nutrition programs to feed their families. The meals provided through these programs should be healthy and help to foster healthy eating habits and this legislation provides the framework to make that happen.

Please vote for S. 3307, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act before the child nutrition programs expire on September 30.

I look forward to hearing from you about how you plan to vote on child nutrition.

If you or someone in your home is gluten-free meals this holiday season, you may be thinking about the fact that everyone's meal will be affected. How do you plan those celebratory meals and stay gluten-free?
