New California bill could eliminate cost of school lunch for families in need

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Politicians introduced the public to a bill Thursday that, if passed, would ensure no child in need goes without a school lunch.

In San Diego alone, 251,894 students are enrolled in the free/reduced lunch program, according to the San Diego County Office of Education. Those families make around $34,000-$48,000 a year, according to Assemblywoman Luz Rivas from Los Angeles.
