"The National CACFP Forum is deeply disappointed that Congress did not pass a critical Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill during the 114th session. Congress was unable to come together to send a strong message that they are serious about combating hunger and childhood obsity. They have missed the opportunity to help millions of children across this country.
"Failure to pass a child nutrition reauthorization bill has a real impact on every child and the nutrition necessary for them to grow, learn, and thrive.
"We hope the next Congress will protect and strengthen important child nutrition programs and put the interests of people most in need, especially children, first."
