This report outlines amendments to the National School Lunch Act (NSLA) to improve the nutritional well-being of children under the age of 6 living in homeless shelters, and for other purposes. These amendments: (1) modify the homeless children feeding project authorized by the NSLA so that greater program flexibility is provided and more grantees are allowed to participate in the program; (2) authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to solicit and accept private gifts to establish a program to promote breastfeeding; (3) make a clarifying change regarding for-profit child care center eligibility in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and reauthorize a demonstration program that determines a for-profit center's eligibility in the program; (4) modify the definition of "nutritional risk" in the Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and (5) reauthorize a demonstration program under the NSLA which enabled 60 school districts to receive cash payments or letters of credit in lieu of entitlement commodities. The report describes committee action on the proposed amendments, provides background information on the legislation, and reprints the text of the amendments. (MDM)
