House Passes Child Nutrition Bill

Today we celebrate the passage of the long-awaited Healthy, Hunger-Free Families Act. The legislation will increase access to federal food programs for millions of children and improve the nutritional quality of the meals they serve. And for that, we have many, many people to thank.
So thank you, Senate Agriculture Chairman Blanche Lincoln and House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller. Thank you for your tireless efforts to get the child nutrition bill passed. You are true champions for hungry children and invaluable partners in our fight to end hunger.
Also instrumental to the process are Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and First Lady Michelle Obama. We thank you and and all Members on both sides of the House and Senate who supported the passage of this remarkable child nutrition bill.
