Review and Reauthorization of Certain Child Nutrition Programs. Hearings before the Subcommittee on Nutrition of the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, United States Senate and the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, United States Senate. Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session (March 12 and April 4, 1984).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.
Testimony is given in this report from two hearings concerning reauthorization of the nonentitlement child nutrition programs: the Women, Infants, and Children Feeding Program; the Summer Food Service Program; Nutrition Education and Training (NET); State Administrative Expenses, and authority for section 32 commodities. At the March 12, 1984 hearing before the Subcommittee on Nutrition, recommendations were given by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regarding funding and administering these programs. Other witnesses from public and private agencies presented views on reducing students' cost for the reduced-price school lunch, reinstating verification of parent eligibility for food assistance to family or group day care providers, reauthorizing funding of NET, and allowing the USDA to no longer sponsor the Summer Food Service Program. The second hearing was held before the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry on April 4, l984. Testimony was presented on the above issues and on the effects of making private schools ineligible for the school lunch program if their annual tuition is more than $1,500. Ways to require and fund better nutrition in the breakfast program were informally discussed. Copies of two bills are appended: S.1913 proposes certain changes in the school lunch and other child nutrition programs, and S.1994 would amend the National School Lunch Act to reinstate eligibility criteria for participants in the Child Care Food Program.
