Comments from 2/16/20 Poll - School Lunch for Everyone

If a bill becomes law, Vermont would be the first state in the nation to universally offer school meals to students at no charge to their individual families. Advocates insist the idea would be good for public health, eliminate embarrassment in kids who know they're in the red, and would boost student learning.  Do you approve of this law?

NYCDOE already does this. Anonymous
Better to improve the overall quality and quantity of lunch.
Minimum standards are disgraceful and not enough for growing children.

Meals should be an integral part of a student's day. tim.tubbs@lcschools.org
The pros outweigh the cons but you would still need to give choice and of course be mindful of all potential food allergies especially with very young children. Anonymous
Why not? I believe, as a society, we can afford it. This seems to me an eminently reasonable plan and concept. No objections. None. Anonymous
How will it be paid for? Anonymous
Yes, as long as the funding for meals does not come out of school districts’ allocated education funding Anonymous
My entire district feeds all students free for breakfast and lunch. I do think free meals are good for students who need assistance. However, my district experiences ten of thousands of dollars in wasted food. Assist the ones who need it. Anonymous
I think it sounds good but who will pay for it? Anonymous
Yes, it's common sense. Anonymous
