Food Research & Action Center Endorses the No Shame at School Act

WASHINGTON, June 20, 2019 — FRAC announced its support of the No Shame at School Act, introduced by Rep. Ilhan Omar and Sen. Tina Smith, both Democrats from Minnesota. The bill would ban any kind of identification of students who cannot pay for lunch at school, like wristbands or hand stamps, and not allow schools to publish lists of students who owe money for school meals or use debt collectors to recoup meal fees.
