A bunch of Senate Democrats have launched a invoice that might wipe out pupil meal debt for teenagers throughout the US.
Fetterman stated there are greater than 30 million children within the U.S. who can’t afford faculty meals and that the nationwide public faculty meal debt is $262 million a yr.
“‘Faculty lunch debt’ is a time period so absurd that it shouldn’t even exist,” Fetterman stated in a press launch on Monday. “That’s why I’m proud to introduce this invoice to cancel the nation’s pupil meal debt and cease humiliating children and penalizing starvation.”
The brand new invoice would erase pupil lunch debt by directing the Division of Agriculture to pay for all money owed owed to varsities for lunch and breakfast applications.
