Expand Child Nutrition School Lunch Protection Act

Concerning expanding the grades eligible for the child nutrition school lunch protection program, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Session:
2018 Regular Session
Subject:
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)

Current law creates an annual appropriation to provide lunches at no charge to children in state-subsidized early childhood education programs administered by public schools or in kindergarten through fifth grade who would otherwise have to pay for a reduced-price lunch.

The bill extends the grade of eligibility to eighth grade in schools that elect to participate in the expanded program.

The bill authorizes an annual appropriation, including a cap on the amount of the annual appropriation, to cover the expanded grades of eligible children.
