The National School Lunch Program

Fact Sheet

One key way food insecurity has been reduced for many low-income school children is through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The NSLP is a federally assisted meal program created to provide nutritional lunches to children during the day at a free or reduced price. All children who meet income requirements for the program can receive school lunch benefits. As Latino households with school-aged children have high rates of food insecurity, hunger, and poverty, the NSLP plays an important role in providing Latino children with proper nutrition and in helping to mitigate hunger.
