Sign the Petition

Imagine a student standing in line, watching as her meal is dumped in the trash rather than served to her. Another child given a cold meal instead of the hot lunch being offered to other students. Yet another forced to have a stamp on their arm that reads "I need lunch money."

As if it's not bad enough to face hunger every day, children now face humiliation at some schools when struggling parents fall behind on their lunch payments.

Kids who face hunger every day already worry about being singled out, and this kind of behavior only makes them feel more ashamed. This cruelty toward children is wrong.

Sign the petition to urge Congress to support a ban on lunch shaming!
