Senate Places A Hold On Revised Child Nutrition Bill
One provision has hung up a Senate vote to reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act. The provision aims to strengthen the process school districts must use to ensure that only poor and near-poor children get their meals free or at very low cost. The districts must then verify family incomes of the 3,000 applications they’ve approved, or 3% if that’s less.
