School Meals for All Kids

Every student needs healthy meals at school – regardless of their family’s ability to pay

Providing no-cost school meals can fight child hunger, make kids healthier, and improve academic performance.

In North Carolina, 1 in 6 children struggle with hunger, which means they aren’t able to get enough food or they aren’t able to get enough healthy food. That’s over 400,000 children in our state. Yet many do not qualify for free or reduced-price lunch because their family’s income is too high.

Children should not have to skip meals or take on debt when their parents can’t pay.
