New California law guarantees lunch for all students

Bill ensures a meal for each student regardless of unpaid fees

The State of California has passed a new law that guarantees lunch for all students, regardless of unpaid fees.

The bill states students should not be denied a meal of their choice because of remaining fees on their accounts and it ensures students aren't shamed or treated differently than others.

The new policy also looks at new, effective ways of contacting parents when there is a bill.
