Making A Difference With Every Meal
https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/nu/sn/cauniversalmeals.aspThe State of California is the first state to provide, statewide, universal meals to school children. According to the California State Department of Education website, there are three pillars to the universal meal program:
- Pillar One: California’s State Meal Mandate is expanded to include both a nutritiously adequate breakfast and lunch for, not just needy children, but all children each school day.
- Pillar Two: High poverty schools will be required to participate in a federal provision.
- Pillar Three: The California State Legislature allocates funds to provide additional state meal reimbursement to cover the cost of the Universal Meals Program.
