School meal programs are important in fighting child hunger.
When students participate in school meals programs, their behavior, comprehension, and attendance improve.
The meals they receive at home are just as important, and that’s why the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a lifeline for families struggling with food insecurity.
Nutritious meals prepare children for learning and shape their food choices and health outcomes as adults.
Help students get the healthy meals they need. Ask Congress to fund free school meals for all students, hands-on training and professional development for school food-service staff, and up-to-date equipment for school kitchens, and to protect and strengthen SNAP—our nation’s most effective anti-hunger program.
