The time is now.

COVID-19 has worsened our already pressing hunger crisis, especially for children. Food insecurity increased from 1 in 10 children to 1 in 5 households with children in Massachusetts. Join our coalition to pass School Meals for All legislation (S314/H714) that provides a solution that lasts far beyond the pandemic.

THE SOLUTION IS CLEAR.

Universal school meals — school meals available at no-cost to every student — have benefits that extend far beyond the lunch table. Research shows when a child is well fed, they perform better in school, are at lower risk for obesity, and adjust to social situations better. Additionally, by making meal access universal, we help remove stigma around economic status and family situation—creating a more equitable and just educational environment.
