Recording: Good Food: The Essential School Supply, Mar 7, 2022

When schools closed during COVID, millions struggled to keep hunger at bay for their kids. Then healthy school meals for all children became a reality. But this program ends in June 2022, and we will be at an inflection point. How can we motivate America to declare—as California did—that free, nutritious school meals are as critical to school success as textbooks? Practitioners, funders, and policymakers share stories addressing the need for every child to have access to nutritious meals.
