An act relating to school meals.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2527, as introduced, Nazarian. Free school breakfast: nonschoolaged children.
Existing law requires a school district, county superintendent of schools, or charter school maintaining kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive, to provide a needy pupil with one nutritionally adequate free or reduced-price meal during each schoolday, and authorizes a school district or county office of education to use funds available from any federal program, including the federal School Breakfast Program, to comply with that requirement. Existing law generally requires a school district or a county superintendent of schools to provide breakfast and lunch free of charge to all pupils at a very high poverty school, as defined.
This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would establish a pathway for eligible nonschoolaged children to obtain free school breakfast in order to ensure that nonschoolaged children are not left without a meal.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.
