Minnesota to Serve Free Breakfasts and Lunches for All School Students


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.
