Watch the recording!

In a debate in the NH House Finance Committee, over whether to directly certify Medicaid recipients in school meal programs that would provide ALL children access to nutrition, the House Finance Chair Ken Weyler (R-Kingston) suggested, “Childhood hunger is a distraction in this bill. There are no hungry children in New Hampshire, in the schools.” 

FACT: thousands of NH kids go hungry daily (US Census Bureau).
