The collective experience of teachers, parents, and students, is that current school food practices are usually a source of frustration.  Where there are food provision programs for students in need, "lunch-shaming" is usually part of the process to determine who is eligible for the free food.  Providing food as charity further erodes the recipient group who are already at-risk and fragile.


Our research found that approximately 25% of a family's grocery bill was being spent on foods destined for school lunches.  Add preparation time and cleaning time when the yogurt lid pops off! 

Lunch provision is not a slippery slope towards a "nanny state."   Universal lunch programming in modern, democratic countries has been very successful in many other jurisdictions, like Finland.  There is a model to follow.  What we need is public support and government will.
