  • ‘Beautiful’: Minnesota Becomes 4th State to Provide Free School Meals to All Kids

    Surrounded by students, teachers, and advocates, Democratic Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz on Friday afternoon signed into law a bill to provide breakfast and lunch at no cost to all of the state’s roughly 820,000 K-12 pupils regardless of their household income.

    The move to make Minnesota the fourth U.S. state to guarantee universal free school meals—joining California, Maine, and Colorado—elicited praise from progressives.

    “Beautiful,” tweeted Stephanie Kelton, a professor of economics and public policy at Stony Brook University.

    “No child should go hungry for any reason, period.”
