President Announces 2014 Budget; Includes Grant Funding for School Cafeteria Equipment

Today, President Obama announced his FY2014 Budget   for the federal government which included additional funds supporting nutritional programs. The budget for the Department of Agriculture includes $35 million in grant money for schools to purchase necessary equipment to help meet the new guidelines from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA). It also shores up Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) benefits that were set to be cut this November.  The next step of the budget process is for Congress to begin debate on the Appropriations Committees before votes in the respective Chambers.
