CA Governor Newsom signs measure for banning “Lunch shaming!”
California’s governor has signed into law a bill that guarantees all students a state-funded meal of their choice, even if their parent or guardian has unpaid meal fees.
The measure bans the practice of “lunch shaming,” in which students who owe the school money for meals are denied food or given a cheaper alternative meal.
Under the new law, a school can no longer give a student a cheaper alternative meal.
