Partner Bill

Free School Meals for Children

Nearly 490,000 South Carolinians face hunger. Of those, over 153,000 are children. With students in school 5 days a week, schools could be providing 10 meals a week to these students. Along with our partner Wholespire, WREN supports S. 148. This bill will increase the use of the community eligibility provision under the USDA and allow children in South Carolina schools to have healthy meals where they learn.
