San Francisco Unified School District’s school meals program provides crucial nutrition for many young San Franciscans. Seeing these meals as important for not only supporting student learning but also for addressing hunger throughout the city, the San Francisco Food Bank recently published a study examining the school district’s current program. Hear Richard Carranza, superintendent of San Francisco Unified School District, and Teri Olle, associate director of policy and advocacy at the Food Bank, discuss the findings of the report, the importance of school food and the future of the school meals program in San Francisco.
