U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar has introduced the National Advisory Council on Unpaid School Meal Debt Act, establishing an unpaid school meal debt commission that would play a pivotal role in policy recommendations to address this critical issue. The Council would be composed of 14 members, including food service directors and employees.  

Unpaid school meal debt is on the rise nationwide, threatening the sustainability of school nutrition programs and jeopardizing student access to healthy school meals.

Take action now, to urge your legislators to cosponsor H.R.7639 and begin essential measures to support school meal programs and the students that rely on them.
