House includes 1-year extension of School Meals for All in their budget proposal. The House’s proposed budget is a big step toward fighting hunger in Massachusetts. Your support helped build our coalition against hunger and a grassroots movement that brought us to this milestone. Our next step is to make sure the final budget matches what the House has already offered.

YOU CAN HELP KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THE LEGISLATURE!

Share these social media graphics in the month of May to keep the pressure up. In April, the House of Representatives budget included a one-year extension of School Meals for All. The Feed Kids Coalition and our partners need to make noise to ensure this provision stays in the budget and is signed into law.

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.
