The school lunch war is back, but this time it's the Democrats going on the offensive.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowed Thursday to do "whatever it takes" to ensure the GOP's child nutrition bill "never sees the light of day on the floor of the House."

Pelosi was one of six Democratic lawmakers to lead advocacy groups in a Capitol Hill rally against the reauthorization bill (H.R. 5003), which would open the door to making federal school meal programs into a block grant - a controversial move that anti-hunger groups believe would fundamentally threaten one of the federal government's most successful nutrition programs.
