(St. Paul, MN) — Some Minnesota lawmakers want to make school lunches free for all students. This was the case during the pandemic, but that program expired this fall. As leaders consider what to do with the state’s over 17-billion dollar budget surplus, many have advocated for a permanent policy that would feed every student in school regardless of income requirements. Both Governor Tim Walz and state Representative Sydney Jordan have declared their support.
