make school lunches free for all students

Created by Jayja Neler

This campaign needs to raise $5,000 to hire one of our lobbyists. 100% of donations go towards paying lobbying fees for this issue.

My Story

I think there should be free food in schools because some kids can't afford school lunches.

About National School Lunch Program

National School Lunch Program is a federal program operating in over 101,000 public schools. The program provides "nutritionally balanced meals" at low or no cost to more than 31 million children each school day.

 

School meal programs in the United States provide meals free of charge, or at a very reduced price, to the children of low-income families.

 

Those who do not qualify for the free or reduced price are charged a regular fee. This campaign would lobby Congress to make all school lunch programs free to the public. 

 

The School Lunch Program is regulated and administered by the Food and Nutrition Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)

Generally, private schools cannot participate in the school lunch program.
