This week the House of Representatives and the Senate will each be considering their respective versions of the FY2010 Budget Resolution. The Budget Resolution sets guidelines for total spending and revenue for FY2010 and subsequent years.
As the Congress prepares to reauthorize and strengthen child nutrition programs, it is important that the Budget Resolution include significant additional funding to strengthen the quality and efficiency of all child nutrition programs, increase participation, and fill the gaps in food service for millions of low-income children so that all children will have access to a safe, nutritious, and healthy diet.
