    A Progress Report on the War on Poverty: Lessons from the Frontlines
    Written testimony by CDF President Marian Wright Edelman delivered to the House Budget Committee on April 30, 2014, during the hearing, "A Progress Report on the War on Poverty: Lessons from the Frontlines". Earlier this month the House of Representatives passed the budget proposed by Chairman Ryan that would severely undercut the progress made since the War on Poverty was declared. The budget gets 69 percent of its cuts from programs that assist low-income children and families, while asking nothing from the wealthiest. It cuts tax rates for the richest Americans by taking food and other supports from children.

    Child Watch® Column: “The Seed Experiment”
    A perennial favorite science project from preschool on up is the “seed experiment”: A child plants identical seeds in two pots. She places the first pot inside a dark cupboard and leaves it there, and she puts the second one in a sunny spot and waters it every day. She waits to see what will happen. It’s very easy for even the youngest children to figure out that their seedlings need the basics—sunlight and water—if they are going to survive and thrive. The same is true for children.

    SNAP Works for Children and America
    The Supplemental Food and Nutrition Program (SNAP), formally called Food Stamps, serves children and families by providing targeted assistance to purchase food when they need help most. Since the worst recession in decades began in December 2007, millions of low and middle income parents have lost their jobs and the security of knowing their children would never go to sleep or to school hungry. While these parents work to get their family finances back on track, SNAP has served as a critical support in ensuring their children's daily nutritional needs are met.
