Budget cuts leave summer school students hungry

55.8% of students in California during the 2011-2012 school year received free or reduced lunch.

A recent article written by the Sacramento Bee’s Loretta Kalb has drawn some attention to cuts in funding for summer school courses. According to the article, close to 150,000 students from the Sacramento and Yolo counties were eligible to receive free or reduced lunch during the 2011-2012 school year. However, when summer hit, “fewer than 10 percent of them took advantage of the free meals available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.”
