Agriculture Secretary Urges Swift Reauthorization Of U.S. Lunch, Nutrition Programs

February 23, 2010: 10:44 AM EST
Stressing the Obama Administration’s goals of reducing child hunger and “solving childhood obesity in a generation,” U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told reporters at a press luncheon recently that Congress needs to quickly reauthorize national school lunch and breakfast programs as well as the Child Nutrition Act, the keystone legislation in Michelle Obama's Let's Move! Campaign. Vilsack said the administration’s top priorities in the campaign include: improved nutrition standards, better access to meal programs, more education about healthy eating, enhanced food safety and healthier school food. Other priorities, Vilsack said, focus on standards for competitive foods sold in schools, training of school cooks and better cafeteria equipment.
