When Congress looks at SNAP this year:

indexEvery last one of them should go to this map, at Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The map shows how much communities took advantage of the low-to-no-cost breakfast and lunch programs at schools. The Community Eligibility Provision allows schools that serve predominantly poor students the opportunity to offer free breakfasts and lunches to all students. The figures are gathered from programs such as SNAP (the former food stamp program), as opposed to individual paper applications from each family.

Amazing that communities would let this money lie fallow, while children go hungry. Connecticut? We’re good but we could be better. And thanks, Leftover, for the links.
