School breakfast and lunch should not be just a program aimed at officially poor kids. Instead, school breakfast and lunch should be free for all kids in public K-12 schools--like riding the school bus, sitting at the desks, and using the gym.

I have 4 children in the Memphis City School system. Shelby County children are starving when they come from low income families that don't qualify for the state SNAP program but work minimum wage jobs that doesn't cover food & shelter. I pack my kids lunches & sometimes they come home sad about a kid at school that couldn't afford lunch that day. My babies always end up sharing their food. We need to fix this.

No child should be made to feel less than. I volunteered for lunch duty at my son’s elementary school several years ago. They would give a child a peanut butter (no jelly) or cheese sandwich and a milk if they didn’t have enough or forgot their money. Meanwhile they threw dozens of servings of the entire hot lunch away at the end of lunch periods. I asked them to give it to the kids, but they said they weren’t allowed. The principal said it would just encourage parents to not put money into their child’s account. Isn’t it better to not waste the food? We need to invest in our children. All kids deserve to learn without the distraction of hunger.
