Trump rule deprives 1 million school kids of automatic free lunch – Business Insider

According to Department of Agriculture figures released Tuesday, 982,000 children will no longer automatically qualify for a free school lunch under planned changes to the food stamps program.
Around 55% of those children will now have to pay. The remaining 45% remain eligible for free lunches, but will have to pass extra bureaucracy to access what was once automatic.
The Trump administration claims its changes close loopholes that allows children free lunches even if their parents are not really in poverty.
