Stop the Block

School Nutrition Association Stop Block Grants

Congress is considering a school meal block grant proposal. Block grants would cut funds for school meal programs and abolish federal nutrition standards and meal eligibility mandates. Children in need could lose access to free or reduced price school meals under this proposal.

SNA is urging members to ask Congress to oppose school meal block grants. Below are three ways to take action and details on how SNA is fighting to #STOPtheBLOCK.

  1. Visit Action to send an Action Alert email to your Members of Congress in opposition to block grants.

  2. Call your Senators and Representatives. Visit the SNA Action Network and scroll down to “Look Up Your Legislators.” Enter your zip code to find links to their contact information and Twitter handles. View sample script to use in communicating with Members of Congress.

  3. Spread the word about all SNA 2017 positions, including block grants. View sample tweets and posts.
