What is the Alliance?

The NYC Alliance for CNR is a group of diverse stakeholders working together for a strong Child Nutrition Act.

The Child Nutrition Act governs the School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, WIC, and other federal programs that provide food and nutrition education to children and families.  Congress authorizes the legislation every 5 years.  The current bill expires on October 1, 2015. Read More

This is a once in a five year opportunity to make improvements to programs that feed and educate millions of children from infancy through adolescence.  In New York State alone, over 1.8 million children eat school lunch every day, and nearly half of those meals are eaten in NYC public schools.

We are leading an action campaign for New Yorkers to engage in this debate.
