Congressman Crawford discusses Sensible School Lunch Act with KAIT
March 20, 2013
Congressmen Rick Crawford (AR-1) introduced the Sensible School Lunch Act in the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation will provide school districts with greater flexibility in implementing new rules for the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.
"USDA's new school nutrition regulations are not working and are leaving students hungry. In October, I hosted a Nutrition Summit in my district where I listened to school administrators, parents, nutritionists and teachers tell me how the nutrition guidelines are affecting their students," said Crawford. "The Sensible School Lunch Act addresses the concerns I heard late last year and gives individual school districts the flexibility they need to feed their students. I am proud to be joined by Congressmen Griffin, Womack and Cotton in co-sponsoring this common sense legislation."
