NJ Spotlight--Ending ‘Lunch Shaming’ in NJ Schools: Lawmakers Propose Funding Remedy

Legislation set for a hearing in the state Senate Education Committee on Thursday would appropriate $4.5 million to cover the full cost of reduced-price school breakfasts and lunches beyond what federal reimbursements cover.
