The Child Nutrition Act is a federal law that sets policies and funds programs that help all children have access to nutritious foods. Programs include WIC, National School Lunch Program, Summer Food Service Program and more. Congress reviews and reauthorizes the act every five years and work is now underway to pass a new bill.
Speak out and share your story about why school meals and WIC are important to you! We’ve created two posters you can print and write in your own message.
- Click the images below to print the posters at the size you need, fill in the blanks and take a photo of yourself holding the sign.
- Post your photo to social media with the hashtags from the poster.
- Tag @kchealthykids and your legislators. If you’re in Kansas, tag Senator Jerry Moran, Senator Pat Roberts and Representative Sharice Davids. In Missouri, tag Senator Josh Hawley, Senator Roy Blunt and Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. Find their social media handles here.
- Hang your poster in a public place and you’re done!
