Kristin Murphy, Deseret News
I am a ninth-grader in the Granite School District. The school last year told us that the school lunch policy would soon change because of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act. I used to always get school lunches. My favorite consisted of a sub sandwich, fruit, a bag of potato chips and milk.
When this act came into place, that all changed. When the policy was implemented, the size of the sandwich decreased, and they excluded the chips and the amount of options of fruit as well. The new version leaves me feeling hungry.
Since the act, I have been bringing lunch every day to school. Decreasing food does not make kids hunger-free.
