Boston and Free School Meals
Hypatia
How refreshing, and what a relief, to hear someone is taking steps forward rather than backwards in helping to feed school children.

The cuts in food programs and the Head Start program and programs to assist the elderly (Meals on Wheels, food stamps) compared to what we spend on defense, and what we're willing to pay pro-athletes, causes me much concern.

Breakfast and lunch should be include in every schools budget. I'm pretty sure a hungry child doesn't learn as well as a fed one.
