Minnesota to Serve Free Breakfasts and Lunches for All School Students

03/20/2023

Minnesota is considering legislation to allow all school children to eat breakfast and lunch in irrespective of parental income.

 

Senator Heather Gustafson (D-FL) stated, "feeding kids at school is the right thing to do".  She added, "being hungry makes learning almost impossible".

 

To qualify for free and reduced priced meals, schools must enroll in a federal program with the state paying for students who do not qualify for a subsidy.  The vote to place $380 million in the state budget to cover universal school meals was approved by a 38 to 26 bipartisan majority.
