School Meals in the News

The Access to School Breakfast event is well-timed because the issue of school meals has been in the news a great deal lately, especially the issue of unpaid meal debt and student shaming. 

For more information on this issue, see:
In addition, the Governor’s proposed budget for FY 2020 includes a No Student Hungry initiative that would increase access to school meals by encouraging more schools to implement the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and breakfast after the bell, two proven strategies for increasing access to school meals. This budget initiative and other proposed budget items that will affect the well-being of Rhode Island’s children are further explained in Rhode Island KIDS COUNT’s analysis of the Governor’s Proposed FY 2020 Budget .
