TFC Advocating to #EndHungerNow on Capitol Hill

The NYC Alliance for Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR) was out in full force on Capitol Hill with colleagues Claire Uno (Tisch Food Center), David DeVaughn (City Harvest), and Greg Silverman (Wellness in the Schools) working to #EndHungerNow. 

Anti-hunger advocates spent the day on the Hill, urging public officials to ensure that the federal nutrition safety net remains strong and fully funded as Congress makes critical policy decisions on appropriations, the Federal budget and Child Nutrition Reauthorization.

The NYC Alliance for CNR is a group of diverse stakeholders working together for a strong Child Nutrition Act. The Alliance is convened by City Harvest and the Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education, & Policy at Teachers College Columbia University.

The Alliance first convened in March 2009 to

 1) Advocate for priorities for NYC in the 2010 Child Nutrition Reauthorization

 2) Act cohesively to deliver our shared message to policy makers and the public.

Now, we convene again to ensure more progress. The Alliance is establishing goals and consensus statement of priorities. We will then seek support for those priorities.
