The School Lunch conversation is heating up on the Hill and off. The New York Times ran an editorial on Monday saying “The schools should not be trading their students’ health to buy office supplies,” and lauding Representative Lynn Woolsey, Democrat of California, and Senator Tom Harkin, Democrat of Iowa, for introducing (and promising to introduce) bills that would “update nutritional standards and give the Department of Agriculture broader authority to promulgate new regulations for food sold in schools that accept federal food subsidies.”
