Brian Schatz: 100% score on the National Food Policy Scorecard

Senator Brian Schatz today received a perfect 100% score on the 2013 National Food Policy Scorecard put out by Food Policy Action (FPA) for his work to make sure Hawai'i families have access to food.

"Having healthy, nutritious food is a basic necessity for everyone, but access to that food may not be so basic," said Senator Schatz. "More than 90,000 Hawai'i families rely on help from the government each month to put food on their tables. We all need to work together to be sure families in Hawai'i have nutritious food."

The full Scorecard for all members of the 113th Congress can be viewed at www.foodpolicyaction.org. FPA was created in 2012 to turn shared values about sustainable food and farming into national priorities.

The National Food Policy Scorecard is published to educate the public on food policy issues and provides objective information about the most important food policy votes before Congress. [Press release from the office of the senator].
