December 17, 2010

Iowa Public Radio will cover the school lunch issue, including the petition to extend Iowa City’s school lunches beyond fifteen minutes, in this week’s edition of “The Exchange,” which will air at 12:00 noon on Friday, December 17.

In the first half-hour, Congressman Dave Loebsack will discuss the new federal school nutrition law. In the second half-hour, Katina Lillios, who organized the petition, and Steve Murley, the Iowa City school superintendent, will be joined by Dr. Karen Stout, an educational policy and administration specialist, to discuss the issue of shrinking lunch periods in the schools.

In the Iowa City area, Iowa Public Radio can be found at 910 on the AM dial. To ask a question or comment, call 866-780-9100 (toll free), or e-mail

    Today’s segment on Iowa Public Radio was an important discussion of the problem of hunger and its consequences among US school kids. Some hunger is caused by poverty, and some by school policies. Both undermine the health and education of our kids. While I’m glad the story is getting out, I am also feeling weary of the lack of political leadership on this issue.
