Witnesses to Hunger is proud to release their recommendations for the Child Nutrition Reauthorization.  In this book the members of Witnesses to Hunger share their opinions, suggestions, and experiences with WIC, school meals, and summer meals.

Here are some of their thoughts on the programs:

  • WIC – “WIC gives women a better chance of having a healthy baby by allowing them to purchase nutritional foods for development and growth.” – Nia T., Camden
  • School Meals - “Understand that good quality food is important.  Families rely on these services for their children’s nutrition” – Juell F., Boston
  • Summer Meals – “Partner with schools and no- and low-cost lunch programs to get the word out about the Summer Food Program.  Many folks do not know about it.” – Sarah P., California

In addition to the book below are additional resources:
