The one in four Texas children who are food insecure could be assured a free meal every school day — breakfast — if a bill approved by the Senate on Tuesday continues to advance.
"Passage of this bill is crucial because so many Texas children rely on school meals during the academic year," Sen. Eddie Lucio Jr. said in a statement. "One in four Texas children are food insecure, meaning they are not certain where their next meal will come from. This bill helps close the gap between a hungry child and a healthy child."
