Noem hits the lunchroom to discuss school lunch standards

Posted: Updated:

Representative Kristi Noem took discussion of the new school lunch standards to one of the most polarizing political realms known to man—a middle school lunchroom.  

Noem met with students at Georgia Morse Middle School in Pierre on Tuesday. Last week, the representative sent a letter to Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack asking for more information regarding the new school lunch standards.

Noem said parents, school officials and even her own children approached her with concerns about the new program.

The new lunch standards are part of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, but were not implemented until 2012.
