Two initiatives for universal school meals have been launched


The  #SchoolLunchForAll campaign is an initiative to ensure all K-12 students have access to free school meals when they return to school, without the threat of debt or humiliation. Visit their website for more information and to sign the petition to support universal meals


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a press release/blog titled "To Help Recover From COVID-19, We Need Universal Free School Meals" that urges USDA and members of Congress to act now.  The reputation of this great foundation lends strength to the call for providing universal free meals.  Please take a moment to read the press release and check out their links to associated research and healthy equity principles.
