Montana Achieves Success in Addressing Childhood Hunger

Montana dietitians are celebrating the April 20 passage of HR 8, a joint resolution "to study the degree to which Montana children lack access to adequate nutritious food and to make recommendations on ways to alleviate childhood hunger and improve access to nutritious foods for children throughout Montana."

The study resolution initially met with strong opposition, but the Montana Dietetic Association promptly and effectively mobilized registered dietitians around the state under the direction of the MDA public policy panel.

In January 2010, MDA sponsored a child hunger summit where leaders and attendees recommended a study resolution be considered. The study approved through HR 8 will be assigned for a two-year period to an interim committee of legislators, with the goal of developing policy recommendations for the 2013 legislative session. The committee will explore opportunities to eliminate child hunger, including:

  • Review existing state, federal, local and private programs that provide healthy food to children in settings such as schools, child-care centers and after-school programs.
  • Expand collaboration with local communities to work together to initiate new programs and create a clearinghouse for program information.
  • Seek ways to collaborate with community groups to provide nutrition education, growing one's own food, basic food preparation skills and food budgeting.
  • Promote and expand use of Montana farm products in schools and other facilities with children's programs.
  • Identify policy changes needed to explore the strategic use of public funds and opportunities for public and private investments in improving nutrition and children's future.
