Local Politicians offer different views on providing healthy School Meals

In an excellent article, The Ledger reports on the continuing debate concerning the provision of healthy school lunches. Some 1 in 4 children in Tennessee go hungry. In Nashville, the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act provides all Metro school children with a free breakfast. In addition, some 6,000 meals are provided daily over the Summer vacation. Democrat Bob Corker and Republican Jim Cooper are generally in favor of supporting local or state supported initiatives to help in the supply of nutritious meals. Republican Scott DesJarlais suggests greater economic prosperity and better jobs will allow individuals to take care of these problems themselves. Visit www.tnledger.com for the full story.
