On June 21, the First Focus Campaign for Children–along with several other organizations–submitted this letter to Senators Susan Collins and Heidi Heitkamp, and Representatives Lou Barletta and Mark DeSaulnier for their leadership in introducing the School Food Modernization Act.

This bill is critical to help schools provide healthy food choices for all children.
