School lunch bill debate today

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The Minnesota House votes this afternoon on a $3.5-million-dollar increase for the state's school lunch program.

It's in response to a report that many schools refuse hot lunches, often providing something less nutritious, to students whose families can't pay.

Bill sponsor, Minnetonka Democrat Yvonne Selcer says the bill not only increases state funding for the school lunch program, but also requires any district taking the money to provide no-charge lunches to all qualifying students.
