Grassley Discusses Nutrition Programs with Iowa Leaders

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, met with leaders from various nutrition organizations, businesses and non-profits while hosting a roundtable on nutrition programs on August 17th.

“It’s important to hear directly from leaders within an industry to learn more about the challenges they face,” Grassley says, “I will bring their input to our upcoming Farm Bill discussions.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Grassley supported numerous programs to help with funding for meals for those who depended on them, such at the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and even cosponsoring the bipartisan Hunger-Free Summer for Kids Act.

This is Grassley’s 42nd year of holding meetings in every one of Iowa’s 99 counties, and ahs held a meeting in every county, every year since he was first elected into the U.S. Senate.
