In partnership with the Food Bank for NYC, Equity Advocates is leading the NYC Alliance for CNR, a coalition of 40 organizations advocating for a strong Child Nutrition Act. Congress is currently undertaking efforts to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act (CNR), which governs the School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women Infant and Children (WIC), and other federal programs that provide food to children and their families. With the largest school district in the nation and a huge constituency of WIC and CACFP participants, New York City can be a very influential voice for positive change within the CNR. A strong CNR will ensure healthy children who are ready to learn, generate local economic opportunities and strengthen communities.
