I Support The Hunger-Free Schools Act of 2017!
Dear State Senator/Delegate,

I am writing to urge your support of The Hunger-Free Schools Act of 2017 (House Bill 287/ Senate Bill 361), legislation that protects Maryland schools that elect the federal funding for school meals available through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).

The Community Eligibility Provision allows high-poverty schools to provide access to free breakfast and lunch to all students.

Benefits of the Community Eligibility Provision include:
• Increased participation in the school meal programs,
• A reduction in labor costs for schools,
• Increased efficiency in the school meal programs,
• Reduced stigma, and
• Increased federal revenues for schools.

The Hunger-Free Schools Act of 2015 successfully increased access to the Community Eligibility Provision, at no cost to the State of Maryland. This law is now expiring and needs to be renewed so that the 227 Hunger-Free Schools in Maryland - from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore, Howard County to Baltimore City - can continue to benefit.

I urge your support of The Hunger-Free Schools Act of 2017.
