TlllEE GREAT GROUPS in our country have been
in need-underpaid farmers, unemployed workers, and
underfed children. The School Lunch Program aids all
of these groups. It utilizes millions of dollars' worth of
farm products that cannot he sold through the usual
commercial channels without depressing farm prices. It
gives work to thousands in preparing and serving lunches,
and it feeds millions of children who wouldl otherwise be
School-lunch activities, condluctedl bv many individuals
and agencies, have been widespread and successful in this
country, in Europe, and in South America, for a long
time. The depression brought additional governmental
agencies into the field and increased the adequacy of
lunches served, the number of pupils receiving lunches,
and the territory covered.
This newer aid carried the school-lunch work out into
the remote country where undernourishment is too often
prevalent and where facilities for school lunches are
scarce. Now more country than city children are receiving
school lunches. Yet malnutrition is still widespread
in the United States.
This bulletin tells how the School Lunch Program
works, how rural schools enter the program, and how they
can get help to keep the lunches going. It shows that
the background and basis of the school-lunch undertakings
are usually somewhat similar in city, village, and country.
