SNA calls for more money for lunches

The School Nutrition Association today issued its 2016 position paper calling for more money for school meals.

In the paper, SNA, which represents school food service directors and the companies that make school foods, said the federal government should increase reimbursement for school lunch and breakfast by 35 cents per meal and provide an additional 10 cents in foods for school breakfast.

The paper also said that the government should provide $1 million for an independent study of federal reporting requirements for child nutrition programs and that Congress should “compel USDA to complete its report and implement regulations that effectively address debt arising from unpaid meal charges.”

The paper also called for passage of the child nutrition reauthorization bill that the Senate has proposed.
