William F. Goodling Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 1998
William F. Goodling Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 1998 — This law (enacted as P.L. 105-336; October 31, 1998) extended expiring authorizations for child nutrition and commodity assistance programs, and the WIC program, through FY2003. It also made modest revisions to child nutrition and WIC program rules. Most prominently, it significantly expanded the availability of federal subsidies (through the school lunch program and the CACFP) for snacks served in after-school programs, authorized demonstration projects providing free breakfasts for elementary schoolchildren without regard to family income, and added a number of provisions to child nutrition law to protect the integrity of the WIC program and the CACFP.
