Rosa DeLauro Honored For Her Dedication to Children and Preventing Hunger

Rosa DeLauro Honored For Her Dedication to Children

rosa-1On Thursday, November 3rd, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro was honored by Food4Kids New Haven during a celebration at Lo Ricco Towers in New Haven.  The event was a celebration and appreciation of DeLauro’s many years of hard work and dedication to issues affecting children and families – especially childhood hunger.  Rosa is a leader and a powerful voice in fighting to improve and expand federal support for child nutrition and for modernizing our food safety system.  She continually advocates for the School Lunch Program, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which provide critical aid to aid children and families at or below the federal poverty level.

Food4Kids New Haven provides weekend supplemental food to school children in New Haven.  The bags, designed to discreetly tuck in backpacks, contain kid-friendly, non-perishable foods that can be easily opened and consumed.  This program, now in its fourth year, is a joint project between Jewish Family Service of Greater New Haven and Women’s Philanthropy of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.  To support his vital program, please click here and be sure to specify “Food4Kids” in the program designation.
