Statement from Vicki Escarra, President and CEO, Feeding America, on the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Draft Legislative Proposal
Date:3/17/2010

CHICAGO, March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Feeding America President and CEO, Vicki Escarra, today issued the following statement regarding the Reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act:

"On behalf of Feeding America and its more than 200 network member food banks, I thank U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln, (D-Ark.), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, for her leadership and commitment to advancing the Child Nutrition Reauthorization process. Through the release today of a draft legislative proposal, Chairman Lincoln has signaled her commitment to expanding nutrition program access for children in need.

Nearly one in four children in the United States is at risk of hunger. This draft legislative proposal has the potential to increase access to nutritious food both during the school day and when school is out. This is an important step in addressing the gaps for low-income children afterschool, in the summer, and over weekends and extended school holidays.

We continue to support President Obama's proposal for $10 billion over 10 years in new funding for child nutrition
