Mayor de Blasio Should Sign Legislation to Eliminate Hunger in Schools
No child should have to go hungry in the richest city in the world. After winning Universal School Lunch this September, in October, legislation I authored passed the City Council requiring the Department of Education to set goals to improve upon and report on participation in breakfast, lunch, snacks, and supper so we know how many of our 1.1 million public school children are getting the food they need. Sign our petition asking the Mayor to sign this legislation into law.
We won! The Mayor signed this legislation and implemented free school lunch for all 1.1 million public school students.
