Richard Besser, RWJF president and CEO, praised the U.S. Department of Agriculture for offering flexibility so schools can serve students during the COVID-19 outbreak. Students depend on school meals to keep them healthy and to give them a better chance at succeeding in the classroom. This is especially true for the more than 20 million children who receive free or reduced-price meals.
Child and Family Well-Being
Every child deserves the opportunity to lead the healthiest life possible. And every family deserves the opportunity to raise healthy kids—no matter where they live, where they are from, or how much money they make. RWJF works to advance programs and policies that help achieve healthy, safe, and stable environments for all children and their families.
