Given the fact that 55 million US children between the ages 5 and 19 spend the majority of their days at school, the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) inherently has a significant role in determining the quality of our children's' lives. At public schools and nonprofit private schools nationwide, the NSLP has been tasked with the duty to provide nutritious lunches to children on each school day. However, there are a number of issues that surround the program that limit its effectiveness. In this paper, I will discuss the nature of these issues from a national standpoint, narrow in on the barriers that particularly effect the capability of Rockbridge County School District's Lunch Programs, and provide a solution that could bring our nation's schools one step closer to fostering positive dietary habits within our schools' children.
