Voice Support for Hunger-Free Schools in Minnesota

March 16, 2022

One in six Minnesota children experiences food insecurity, yet one in four food-insecure kids comes from a household that doesn’t qualify for support, according to the Minnesota Hunger Initiative.

Hunger-Free Schools are essential to ensure all students are supported in achieving their academic potential; that all students have access to nutritious options while they are developing life-long eating habits; and that there is no stigma associated with receiving free school meals.

Consider contacting your legislators and letting them know you support HF 1729 and SF 1902 as a critical first step to increase participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and invest federal resources necessary to support school meals for all kids in high poverty schools.
