Members of Congress are currently considering the Child Nutrition Act, which comes up for re-authorization every five years. In 2010, Congress passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which changed many aspects of child nutrition programs, including the National School Lunch Program. Now there’s room for change. Are you concerned about what your children are eating at school? Do you want to see changes made to school lunches, breakfasts and snacks? How will Native American children be affected after Congress makes a decision on the School Lunch Program?
