Trump administration plan might reduce access to school lunches

USDA proposed rule could result in about 982,000 students nationwide not qualifying for free/reduced meals.

Because families that qualify for food stamps automatically receive free and reduced price school meals, this could mean hundreds of thousands of students nationwide could be removed from that list.
