Creating a National Solution to Address School Meal Debt

Senior Policy Analyst

We have all seen the news stories — a child being denied a lunch in the cafeteria, a student being offered a sunflower butter and jelly sandwich instead of a hot lunch, a child who saw their lunch meal thrown in the trash on their birthday because they had accrued $9 in unpaid school meals fees while their free school meals application was being processed, and even a district threatening to put children with outstanding school meals debt in foster care.

While many states, such as California and New Mexico, are taking steps to address unpaid school meals debt and ensure all students have access to the nutrition they need to thrive, the stories keep coming out. We need a national solution.
