If Democrats and Republicans ever decide to try bipartisanship as a first – instead of last – resort, they should start with childhood hunger in America.
This is one of our nation’s most solvable problems. We have no shortage of food or childhood food and nutrition programs, including school meals, SNAP, WIC and summer meals.
We just need effective leadership to ensure these programs reach the kids who need them — like the governors from both parties who have leveraged these resources to add more than three million kids to school breakfast, delivering one of public policy’s greatest accomplishments of the past decade.
