Here is a video from the National Journal, a non-partisan reporting agency, about the current reauthorization that has passed the Senate Agriculture Committee. It's a disappointing 6¢ per meal increase. That's not enough to make any appreciable change to the quality of school meals. No fresh food. No reduction in processed food. No local food. No organic food. This will barely keep up with costs. Shameful. We can find billions and billions for military spending, but we can't find more than 6¢ for children's health and wellbeing? Shameful.
