Project Bread

Today, only 50% of MA kids who need school breakfast are getting it. 50% is a failing grade. Tell your legislators to pass "An Act Regarding Breakfast After the Bell." Breakfast is needed daily for 150,000 kids in 700 schools. 👉projectbread.org/acth#BreakfastAfterTheBelllZ
The @NBPublicSchools are again approved for free lunch provision. All year, the award winning Food Service team & our data analysts work behind the scenes matching ISP percentages to reach CEP threshold, the technicalities that mean school meals for free to over 13,000 students

However, the chilling effect by the proposal of this rule has already made far too many families afraid. We will continue to stand with our immigrant neighbors so they don't ever have to make the heartbreaking choice between keeping family together and receiving food assistance.
Today, 3 federal judges blocked the #PublicCharge rule set to into effect on October 15th. Their rulings will allow eligible immigrants and their families to continue accessing the services they need to survive and thrive in this country, like SNAP. nytimes.com/2019/10/11/us/…
