Democrats Propose Bill To Expand School Lunches To Weekends And Holidays
Why stop there?
Maybe public schools should buy clothing for children, take them to the doctor and teach them to walk.
Little by little, progressives are trying to remove the role of parents from the lives of children and this will continue unabated until Republicans are back in power at which point, liberals will once again decry the overreaching power of the state.
Dem bill would expand school lunch program to weekends, holidays
Four House Democrats have proposed legislation that would expand school lunch programs to weekends and holidays.
Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) proposed the bill, which would amend the Richard Russell National School Lunch Act to set up weekend and holiday “feeding programs.” The proposal is meant to help ensure that at-risk school children meet their nutritional needs, but it would only extend this help during the school year, not during the summer.
Her bill, H.R. 1395, is co-sponsored by Reps. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), and Terri Sewell (D-Ala.).
The bill is the latest entry to the list of legislation meant to tweak the national school lunch program. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), for example, has proposed the Healthy Lifestyles and Prevention America Act, S. 39, which would broaden the federal nutrition program, including by expanding it to childcare centers.
