Opposition to the Improving Child Nutrition and Education Act of 2016 (H.R. 5003)


A letter to Chairman Kline, Ranking Member Scott, Subcommittee Chairman Rokita, and Subcommittee Ranking
Member Fudge

The undersigned organizations write to express our opposition to the “Improving Child Nutrition and Education Act of 2016” (H.R. 5003). The bill contains numerous provisions that would roll back years of progress. Large numbers of low-income children would no longer be able to access the nutritious meals they need for their health and learning, and the meals children still obtain would be less healthy.
