Senators Take Steps To Improve School Lunches

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Senators Heidi Heitkamp and Susan Collins of Maine introduced legislation today to provide schools with the tools and resources they need to offer healthy lunches for students.

Many school kitchens were built decades ago and are lacking basic equipment.

The School Food Modernization Act aims to make better use of current resources by authorizing grants and loan assistance for school equipment and infrastructure improvements and by helping food service personnel meet the updated nutrition standards.
