You don’t have to be a PTA member to advocate for kids – it just helps!
Healthy, hunger-free kids - in 2010, this should be a reality. Instead, we are wrangling over the wording of laws to continue basic services like school breakfast and lunch programs. Schools all over the country are preparing back-to-school materials right now without the assurance that these programs will continue after the existing programs expire in September.
PTA supports S.3307, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, as the Senate Agriculture Committee unanimously passed it on March 24. It is time for passage of this bill, before the August recess. We need your help in telling Congress just how important this bill is. Please go to the National PTA Takes Action site to send your representatives the message to pass S.3307, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 now.
