Minnesota Democrats are Putting Students First
Kristin has been a Minnesota public school teacher for over 15 years. She has seen firsthand how kids being hungry at school negatively affects their learning ability.
Starting in the 2023 school year, every student attending K-12 schools in Minnesota will receive free breakfast and lunch.
Even though one in six Minnesota kids experience food insecurity, Republicans in the Minnesota House and Senate opposed providing universal school meals for students.
Governor Tim Walz and Minnesota Democrats put our kids first and passed a bill to provide universal free breakfast and lunch for students.
Providing universal school meals to all students invests in the health and well-being of our children, improves school performance and increases attendance, saves families thousands of dollars a year, and ensures that no student goes hungry for any reason.
