Rep. Ilhan Omar compared childhood hunger in America to what she “experienced in a refugee camp in Kenya”:
11 million children in the U.S., a nation of tremendous wealth, face the kind of hunger I experienced in a refugee camp in Kenya.
It’s unacceptable that our students go hungry and into debt for not having lunch money.
Children’s futures depend on making school meals universal.
