All Detroit students will get free breakfast, lunch and snacks as part of a federal pilot program.
“Some students would skip important meals to avoid being identified as low-income,” said DPS Chief Operating Officer Mark Schrupp.
Really? Aren’t low-income students the majority in Detroit’s public schools?
The Free Press photo of a school lunch shows something cheesy (deep-dish pizza?), cherry pie, chocolate milk and lettuce. If the program eliminates meal skipping, it will boost the demand for federal anti-obesity funding.
