Since launching in 2015, Hunger Impact Partners has widened its engagement in the public advocacy arena.
Our state and federal public policy strategies include seven priorities:
- Change regulations to align Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) meal sponsor transfers of licensed childcare centers with the annual sponsor transfers of family daycare homes.
- Advocate for state funding for a technology platform solution to allow meal sponsors of CACFP and the Summer Food Services Program (SFSP) to track meal program participants to improve accuracy, accountability, and reporting efficiencies.
- Limit the number of sites a new meal sponsor can operate during the first year.
- Allocate state funding for annual enrollment campaigns to support free and reduced-price meals application assistance for non-participating families.
- Reinstatement of an annual allocation in state funding for Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) to support program retention and fresh fruit and vegetable purchases.
- Tax-exempt designation for foods purchased by non-profits to support CACFP.
- Advocate for state funding to support on-line WIC purchasing.
