LOUISIANA LEADS IN NEGRO
SCHOOL LUNCH PARTICIPATION
A Report from Clinton, La.
Louisiana has more Negro schools
participating in the National School Lunch
Program than has any other State. One of
the best-managed and most successful
lunchrooms is at the Clinton School,
Clinton, East Feliciana Parish, under the
supervision of Mrs. Ola Fisher, principal.
The program was established at this school
4 years ago. Of the 380 pupils enrolled
at the school, 363 receive lunches. This
parish has an excellent PTA which is
rendering a valuable service under the
direction of Mrs. Fisher. She states there
has been a definite improvement in attitudes
of the children and that friction
has almost been eliminated since hot
lunches have been served. She also says
it is impossible to measure the full value
of the National School Lunch Program.
