From USAToday: Schools becoming the 'last frontier' for hungry kids
America's schools are no longer just a place for students to learn their ABCs.
They are also increasingly where children eat their three squares.
The classroom has become a dining room as more children attending public schools live in poverty. More than half of students in public schools — 51% — were in low-income families in 2013, according to a study by the Southern Education Foundation.
In southwestern Wisconsin alone, one in five children face hunger and food insecurity.
