National School Lunch Program: Trends and Factors Affecting Student Participation

This report by FRAC (Food Research and Action Center) examines the claim that the school meal nutrition standards included in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act have been difficult for schools to implement, thereby causing decreases in school lunch participation. Through analysis of actual participation trends and the complex economic and policy-related causes that are leading to these changes in participation levels, the study provides a comprehensive look at all the factors affecting participation, countering the notion that nutrition standards are the primary factor.
