Marsai Martin Joins School Lunch For All

July 11, 2020

Black-ish actress Marsai Martin has decided to team up with the Urban School Food Alliance and the Student Voice Coalition to pay school lunch fees for every child in America.

According to a press release,

“School Lunch for All is a national campaign led by The Soze Agency and Galaxy Gives to ensure that school meals are provided, free of charge, to every K-12 student in America. To kick off the campaign, School Lunch for All is launching a petition which will put pressure on several legislative leaders including, the United States Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, reallocated COVID-19 relief funds to ensure that all students have access to free meals whenever doors reopen for the 2020-21 academic year.”

Martin commented further, saying:

“With all the things that kids have to worry about while attending school, I believe a healthy lunch shouldn’t be one of them. Kids should be able to focus on learning while at school, not whether or not they have enough money to eat.”
