We are excited to have over 10,000 signatures on SNA’s petition urging President Biden and the U.S. Congress to provide meals to all students at no charge. Let’s make this a “top signed” issue on Change.org by reaching 15,000! Sign the SNA petition for school meals free of charge. Then share the link with your friends!
During the pandemic, the USDA issued waivers allowing all students to eat school meals at no cost. However, In SY2022-23, eligible families must apply to receive reduced-price or free meals, leaving millions of students at risk and forcing schools to take on skyrocketing unpaid meal debt that must be paid out of education funds.
The only solution to ensure safe, healthy and affordable school meals for every student is for Congress to pass legislation that will provide them for all students free of charge–permanently.
