FPA Cofounder Tom Colicchio Calls News “Beyond Outrageous”

“Yesterday’s disappointing announcement that the child nutrition bill is not happening this Congress is beyond outrageous,” said Tom Colicchio, cofounder of Food Policy Action, food advocate, and chef. “It’s already been over a year since the bipartisan Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act expired. Congress continues to fail hungry kids, letting the health and well-being of students fall victim to politics. This proves yet again why we must elect more good food champions in office – we need elected leaders who will put children’s health, nutrition and education ahead of petty partisanship.”
