Breaking News: House of Reps Passes Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010

by Bettina Elias Siegel on December 2, 2010

According to the Obama Foodorama Twitter feed, the House of Representatives has passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 by a vote of 264 to 157.    This is the Senate bill which reauthorizes for five years a variety of nutrition programs including WIC and, of course, the National School Lunch Program.  It will increase school food funding by 6 cents per meal.

I’ll have more updates as they become available.

Wow!!! Like S510, it’s not a cure all by any stretch of the imagination, but at least it’s a step in the right direction!

very curious to see what Spring Branch ISD will do with the extra .06 per meal. hopefully it will fund more fresh produce, or additive free ingredients/products.
