National School Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating
in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions.
It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school
day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by
President Harry Truman in 1946. In addition, sponsors of NSLP may also choose to
offer School Breakfast and the After School Snack Programs. The Special Milk Program
is available for children who do not have access to lunch.
