WASHINGTON June 22 2022 22nd June, 2022 “USDA’s Child Nutrition Programs offer healthy meals to children across America. The nutritionists at the school and other experts who provide these meals require additional resources and flexibility as they face the constant challenges posed by the pandemic. The agreement made yesterday from Chairwoman Stabenow as well as the Ranking Members Boozman along with Chairperson Scott as well as Ranking Member Foxx will ease the burden and bring some relief to our summer camps, schools and child care programs. I’d like to express my gratitude to the members and Chairwoman DeLauro and the entire Congress in taking this crucial step towards the future. It is crucial to remember that all schools in the nation continue to face challenges, and in USDA it will be our mission to employ every tool we have at our disposal to ensure that children receive nutritious meals they require and deserve.”
