Dear Speaker Pelosi:
Almost 1 in 6 children in California live in households struggling with hunger. This is unacceptable. We should provide every child with the opportunity to succeed in life and this means having enough healthy food to eat. Knowing of the fundamental role you will play in setting federal priorities, and as a resident of California, I'm asking you to provide a significant increase of at least $1 billion a year in the amount of funding available for the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Programs. This is a necessary down payment towards achieving President Obama's goal of ending childhood hunger by 2015...because no one should be hungry, especially children.
