Presentations and prepared statements, letters, and supplemental material recorded at 15 Congressional hearings are contained in this document. The purpose of the hearings was to review the school lunch and school breakfast programs and see that these programs function as Congress intended. Statements are recorded from school principals, nurses, nutritionists, food service directors, students, public health officials, and others closely involved with these programs. Topics discussed in the document include food nutritional quality, summer feeding program, percentages of children actually participating in the program in different school districts, amount of plate waste and measures taken to reduce this, and procedures to prevent identification of students receiving the free or reduced rate lunch. Also discussed were the status and problems involved with the Kentucky WIC program, the women, infants, and children supplemental foods program. The program provides selected nutritious foods for pregnant and post-partum women, infants, and children under five years of age, who are found to be in need of these foods to improve their health status.
