Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The first witness in this oversight hearing on the school lunch program, the Assistant Secretary for Food and Consumer Services (Department of Agriculture), presented the findings of a study on child nutrition programs mandated by Congress and discussed the Reagan Administration's view of the status of the programs as a whole, including its policy on income verification for potentially eligible children. The Administration's position, and particularly its position on verification, was criticized in oral and prepared statements by witnesses representing the Children's Defense Fund, the Food Research Action Center, and the American School Food Service Association. The director of food services for Columbus, Ohio, made an oral statement describing the situation in Columbus and criticizing the Administration's verification stand. Material for the record was submitted by the American Legion, the Pittsburgh Public Schools, and the Society for Nutrition Education. (CMG)
