House OKs plugging school lunch funding hole
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota students would be guaranteed school lunches if senators agree with a House vote.
By 130-0, representatives Thursday approved pumping $3.5 million into the school lunch program.
The action came after a February report showed some school districts refused to provide food for students who forgot their lunch money or could not afford to pay. Some reports indicated meals students already had picked up were thrown in the trash.
