Don't leave kids half full: Legislative Priorities for Hunger and Nutrition in 2008
2007 Hunger Legislative Priority: Eliminate reduced price category for school lunches
Nearly 300,000 children in Washington live in households that struggle to put nutritious food on the table every day. The issues these children face can be complex; solving their hunger is not: Feed children three nutritious meals each and every day.
Childhood hunger is a problem that is often hard to see, but its short-term and long-term effects on children’s health and well-being are clear. Childhood Hunger has no place in Washington.
Thanks to elimination of co-pay for school meals, thousands more children are eating a healthy breakfast.
