School Food Fight

Hosted by

The House Appropriations Committee granted a stay of execution for white bread and fruit-free school lunches today. New rules from 2010 have been rolling out over the past few years. They require whole grains and a fruit or vegetable with each school lunch. But the House committee approved a bill that would include one-year waivers for schools that operate at a loss.
