ANTI-”SHAMING” LEGISLATION PROPOSED

Congresswoman Rosa Delauro (D-CT) added a provision to a bill funding FY 2018 discretionary programs for USDA and other agencies that would direct USDA to prevent school-lunch staff from "shaming" a student who does not have enough money for school lunches. DeLauro’s action came as the House Appropriations Subcommittee for Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies advanced the bill to the full Appropriations Committee. The bill calls for cutting USDA by about $1 billion, which is significantly less than President Trump's  $3.7 billion proposed cut.
