Urban Public School Feeding Survey--Fiscal Year 1975. (Report Based on March 1975 Data).
Food and Nutrition Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
The status of school food services in 152 cities with populations of 100,000 and over for fiscal year 1975 is covered in this report. It consists of six sections: general information on all schools, schools in the national school lunch program, schools with other and no food services, schools in low income areas, schools in the school breakfast program, and schools in the special milk program. Numbers of schools and of children are shown by elementary and secondary grades and by a combination of both. The total number of children with access to a lunch program is 95.3 percent. A decrease of 5,921 schools from the 1974 figures is the result of private schools not being included in the present survey. Almost 92.6 percent of the elementary school children, and 96.5 percent of the secondary school children have access to the National School Lunch Program. The School Breakfast Program is available to 32.3 percent of the elementary school children and 21.4 percent of the secondary school children. Elementary school children participate at a much higher rate than secondary school children. The Special Milk Program is about equally accessible to children attending both elementary and secondary schools. (Author/AM)
