Posted: Updated:

Schools have always been on the front lines in the battle against hunger.

More than 30 million kids benefit from federal money for school lunch programs, but by some estimates at least one in six still don't know where the next meal is coming from.

Now, some are arguing that food programs should be expanded - offering free meals to each kid regardless of income.

Last year, the district served 345,000 breakfasts at no charge.

In today’s Where Moms Meet, we want to know – should schools give free meals to all students? Let us know what you think of the TV5 Facebook page and take the poll below.
