(Photo: Julie Dermansky) For the school cafeteria workers fighting for living wages and a union, the full-scale privatization of the New Orleans school system created a race to the bottom that robbed Black communities of good-paying jobs.

Trump's Proposed After-School Cuts Could Lead to More Hungry Kids, Lower Test Scores 21.8.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Greenville, Mississippi—In March, President Trump revealed his "skinny budget," a rough sketch of the nascent administration's fiscal priorities and objectives that included deep cuts to education and nutrition programs. Budget chief Mick Mulvaney defended the move. "[The programs] are supposed to help kids who don't get fed at home so they do better in school," Mulvaney said at a press conference on the day of the announcement . "Guess what? There's no demonstrable evidence they're actually doing that. There's no demonstrable evidence they're actually helping results, helping kids do better in school."

Farm-to-School Movement Fights for a Foothold in Corn Belt Cafeterias 18.8.2017 Truthout.com
As the movement for a local and ethical food system continues to gain traction, school food is slowly but surely becoming a focus in the fight for change.  School districts serve lunch to 30.4 million students a day through the USDA's National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The NSLP provides cash subsidies and USDA foods to enrolled schools, which in turn provide free and low-cost meals for qualifying students. In total, meals served through the NSLP amount to as many as 5 billion per year . Due to the program's scale and the influence of Big Ag interests, the lion's share of food served through the NSLP has typically been sourced from large-scale producers, transported from afar and heavily processed. The resulting meals are often less than nutritious. In 2009, the ground beef the USDA bought from five major meatpackers and distributed through the program failed to meet the quality standards of most fast food restaurants. But two initiatives, the farm-to-school movement and the Good Food Purchasing Policy ...
