This bill amends the Child Hunger Prevention and Fair Treatment Act of 2017 to require applicable local educational agencies (LEAs) to ensure that a pupil whose parent or guardian has unpaid meal fees is not denied a reimbursable meal of the pupil’s choice because of the fact that the pupil’s parent or guardian has unpaid meal fees and that the pupil is not shamed or treated differently from other pupils, thus ensuring that all students receive a reimbursable meal.
