It does not come as a surprise that schools deliver a vital support system to our young people. Discovering this map titled Where in the United States Are Children Most Dependent on School Lunches, you can see just how important free school lunch programs actually are and even that is just a small drop in the bucket of support schools provide their students. There are two states that come in at over 70% of children who are eligible to receive free lunch, Mississippi and New Mexico. There are eight other states that have a high eligibility rate of children and hover around 60%. The majority of these states are also made up of the highest rates of poverty in the country. It is great that there are programs available to provide a free meal to those students who need it most.
