Warren: End Lunch Shaming

States Take On ‘Lunch Shaming’, But Child Nutrition Still Under Threat

Some Minnesota school districts considered barring high school seniors with outstanding lunch debt from graduation ceremonies, until the state attorney general stepped in to prevent it. School meal programs remain under tremendous pressure to be self-supporting. More than three-fourths of schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program reported some degree of meal debt in the 2016-17 school year, according to the School Nutrition Association. Instead of working to make it easier to enroll students for free or reduced-price meals or raise reimbursement rates to schools, the Trump Administration is seeking changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that would only increase the number of students facing food insecurity, if not lunch shaming. States Take the Lead. 

In 2017, educators were among those who urged New Mexico lawmakers to create the Hunger-Free Students’ Bill of Rights. Currently, fifteen states have passed laws that address how schools handle students with meal debt. California passed a new law last week that guarantees every student will receive a full lunch regardless of their ability to pay. No school in the country will be allowed to single out children with lunch debt with handstamps, wristbands, alternative meals, or by assigning chores not required of students generally. NEA supports the bill, along with other critical efforts to undergird federal child nutrition programs, including a thoughtful reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act and federal support to help make training accessible to more school cafeteria workers. 

Nearly a million students who are automatically eligible for free school meals because they live in SNAP households could be denied those meals under the proposed rule. Four years ago, Richmond Public Schools began serving free breakfast and lunch to all students under the Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The double whammy of losing benefits that support their nutrition at home and losing access to school meals would be devastating to those students’ health and learning.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California’s governor has signed into law a bill that guarantees all students a state-funded meal of their choice, even if their parent or guardian has unpaid meal fees. Under the new law, a school can no longer give a student a cheaper alternative meal. In a statement Saturday, Gov. Gavin Newsom thanked Ryan Kyote, a third-grader at an elementary school in Napa County who brought national attention to the practice earlier this year by paying for all the food service bills of his fellow students at the school. The 10-year-old brought national attention to the issue when he used his allowance to pay all the food service bills of his fellow students.

California signs bill to end lunch shaming with meals for all students

School changes lunch policy after taking away student’s cheesy breadsticks on his birthday. Newsom referred to the story of Ryan Kyote, a third grader in Napa, California, who used up his saved allowance to pay off his classmates’ outstanding debts after seeing that a student was forced to return her hot lunch because of her debt. This amazing young man saved his allowance and used it to pay his classmates’ lunch debt. For Ryan, it was just wrong that some kids couldn’t afford to eat lunch.
