The School Nutrition Association (SNA) and the American Commodity Distribution Association (ACDA) have joined forces to support The Healthy Breakfast Helps Kids Learn Act of 2017 (HR 3738). This bill would provide an additional 6 cents in commodity support for the School Breakfast Program (SBP). This means that if the bill were to pass, schools would receive 6 cents for each breakfast served to spend on commodities. As of this time, there is no commodity support for breakfast, only lunch.
Oregon’s very own Chris Facha is the national president of ACDA and has played a huge part in this collaborative support of the bill sponsored by representatives McGovern ( D-MA) and Davis (R-IL).
