Breakfast Bill Aims To Curb Hunger In The Classroom
Have you ever tried to get work done when you're hungry? It's not a pretty situation.
You might feel tired, distracted, even angry until you are able to stop your stomach from grumbling. The benefit for most grownups is that as adults, they have the autonomy to get up from a work desk, or make a pit stop on the road to grab a snack or a drink to help put themselves back on track.
For kids, not so much.
If they miss a bus or have a snow delay, they might miss a whole meal period while rushing to class.
The Massachusetts House and Senate are trying to change how and when kids in need can access breakfast through a piece of legislation on the table known as the Breakfast After the Bell bill. Read more on this bill at Berkshire Eagle.com
