Families with kids across Massachusetts are struggling to keep food on the table as inflation and food costs remain high. During this time of continued economic uncertainty, the School Meals for All program, passed by the legislature in the state budget, has been a lifeline for families. It is because of School Meals for All that an additional 80,000 kids are eating lunch at school every day. But the legislature is currently deciding whether to make the program permanent and as the advocates behind School Meals for All, we need your help this week.
Join us for the Feed Kids Campaign Week of Action to show legislators why School Meals for All needs to become permanent.
