Hunger doesn’t take a summer break. While students are out of class, a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program offers millions of them free food until they go back to school. But, lawmakers say millions more should have access to healthy meals year-round. During the summer, about three million low-income kids eat free meals and snacks at specific sites set up in Washington, DC. It’s part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program. While that may sound like a lot, lawmakers say it’s not even a quarter of the kids who participate in similar programs during the school year. “It sadly is a tremendous problem,” said U.S. Sen. John Boozman (R-Arkansas). That’s why Boomzman is sponsoring a bill to expand the program. Instead of kids traveling to a specific site for food, the legislation would give states the option to deliver it to them, or in some cases, allow eligible families to get more food stamps. “Somebody needs to take care of them. We have programs to do this, but the problem is the rules haven’t changed since the 1960s. The world’s a very different place,” Boozman said. After working on this proposal for years, Sen. Boozman said this is his best chance yet to get it done because he how has bipartisan support, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Advocacy groups are also hungry for change and have thrown their support behind the bill. “Bread for the World is encouraged by the Hunger-Free Summer for Kids Act of 2019, introduced by Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT). Approximately 22 million children are served free or reduced-price school lunches during the school year, while less than four million access a summer meal. Investments in summer EBT and some flexibility for Summer Food Service Program sites will help reach more children who are at greater risk of hunger during the summer months,” Heather Valentine, Director of Government Relations at Bread for the World said in a statement. “When you relax the rules, the private sector, the nonprofits, people who want to help these individuals, they can do it,” Boozman said. According to USDA, the department served more than 150 million meals and snacks to kids last summer at a cost of more than $480 million. If it can get local, state and federal commitments, Boozman thinks his plan could be up and running by next summer. He also believes it will ultimately be included in the Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR). To find a summer meal program in your community, click here.

COPS have arrested two people after parts of an A-Level further maths paper were leaked online. Two blacked out questions from Edexcel maths paper 3 appeared on Twitter – offering students the whole paper for £70 – before the exam was set by students on June 14. Two people have now been arrested after two A-level further maths questions were leaked on Twitter Images of the leaked questions went viral as message inviting exam-takers to get in touch “if you want tomorrow’s A-level maths, stats and mechanics paper 3 exam”. The Twitter account publishing those images has since been deleted and the alleged exam has also disappeared. Pearson, Edexcel’s parent company, replaced it with another maths A-level paper that was taken by around 7,000 students. Today Pearson said that police had informed the firm that two people have been arrested and detained for questioning. Scotland Yard, the force carrying out the criminal cheating probe, was unable to confirm the arrests or provide any further details. Pearson senior vice-president Sharon Hague said: “We understand students are rightfully concerned and want a fair playing field. “The actions we have taken to strengthen our security processes has enabled us, in conjunction with the police, to quickly identify those who we believe were involved in the breach and to take swift and immediate action. “We are systematically working through all leads and, as we continue to investigate the suspects, this will enable us to further hone in on anyone that has gained an advantage, and take action accordingly. “Our key priority is ensuring no students are disadvantaged in any way.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ NEWS” posts_category=”316″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] It came after similar leaks in 2017 and 2018 when A-level maths papers were put up online ahead of the tests. The leaks were probed by the police and evidence was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service for consideration over whether criminal charges should be brought. Earlier this year, Pearson said it would be trialling a scheme where microchips were placed in exam packs to track the date, time and location of the bundles. We pay for your stories!
