Of course they should. Sad that we would have to legislate this. For all those spouting about it being a local issue, please feel free to return all the federal funds supplied to your district for the meal programs. Honestly, we should take a few million from the military budget and use it to pay for breakfast and lunch for all schoolchildren and just call it a day. After all, one of the reasons the program was started was to ensure that children had enough food to grow up without deficits so that they could pass physicals for the armed services during the drafts.
