Congresswoman Jackie Walorski has introduced legislation to help schools navigate the challenges faced by the nation’s food supply chain issues.

Walorski is a co-chair of the House Hunger Caucus, and recently introduced the Securing Nutrition for American Communities and Kids, or SNACK, Act. It would offer flexibility to school nutrition programs and make it easier for them to deal with the ongoing food supply chain disruptions and other situations.

SNACK would extend pandemic-era program options and amend the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 to continue summer food service.

It would also extend supply chain waivers through June of 2024.

Hey Jackie. I need my money to feed myself and my family, not others. Stop stealing from me and giving to others. A good reason to not vote for you this time around.

Jackie seems to be ok with big government tax and spend policies as long as they are HER pet policies. This isn’t much different than the Democrats, honestly.
