Abstract

School lunch inequality is a current problem in America. All across the country, students who are unable to afford lunch at their school are disadvantaged. Past efforts to address this problem, such as the National School Launch Program introduced by President Truman in 1946, have addressed some aspects of this inequality, but there were still issues in their execution. Although school lunch inequality is not as significant of an issue at IMSA, because lunch is covered in the yearly fee, and the fee is adjusted based on students’ families conditions, we believe that we can still make a beneficial impact on our community by raising awareness of this issue. We will accomplish this by holding a general assembly at IMSA where we talk about the school lunch inequality present throughout the country, ensuring that IMSA students are aware of the situation that many students face.
