Urban School Feeding Survey--Fiscal Year 1971.
Food and Nutrition Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
The status of school food service in 150 cities with populations of 100,000 and over for fiscal year 1971 is covered in this report. It consists of six sections: general information on all schools in the national school lunch program, schools with other and no food service, schools in low income areas, schools in the school breakfast program, and schools in the special milk program. Numbers of school and of children are shown by elementary and secondary grades and by a combination of both. Schools with only the special milk program have not been included in the category of schools having a food service. According to data collected, 2,146 schools in these large cities do not participate in the National School Lunch Program, 491 being located in low income areas. Of these, 386 are elementary and 105 are secondary. The report is considered to be of value to cities for comparing performance and exchanging ideas for building student participation in the program.
