School Lunches

Profile AmericaProfile America — Tuesday, October 11th. This is National School Lunch Week — a name that probably conjures up visions of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But it’s time to note the wholesome lunches being served every day to school children across the nation and to thank the many patient people who prepare and serve them. There is a recognized link between having a good meal and the ability of a child to learn. This led to the National School Lunch Act in 1946. There are now 55.5 million children in schools from kindergarten through high school. Of these, more than 31 million receive either free or reduced-cost lunches because of their family income. More than 11 million of these children also eat breakfast at school. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at <www.census.gov>.
