New Mexico Bans “Lunch Shaming” Students Who Don’t Have Money — Food News

New Mexico has become the first American state to take a legal stand on “lunch shaming” students who don’t have money to buy lunch. The tales of lunch shaming are not scarce — students have reportedly been stamped, forced to wear a wristband, had their lunches tossed out, or even told to perform chores in lieu of a meal.

Now, thanks to the Hunger-Free Student’s Bill of Rights, kids can eat lunch without a side of humiliation.
