My Project: The National School Lunch Program

The Keegan Fellowship allows a graduating senior the opportunity to pursue an idea or an issue about which the student is impassioned, and to do so in the context of daily life in a global scenario. To find out more about this incredible fellowship, please click here. More specifically, the fellowship allows me to understand how social policy, nutrition, and food culture plays a role in a society, as the National School Lunch Program stands at the intersection of these topics.

I plan to do this by visiting with schools, reporters, local governmental officials. Also, I will meet and volunteer with local non profits that respond to childhood hunger and youth outcomes. 

My goals for this fellowship are to:
  1. Understand the historical, political, and cultural contexts from which a country's school lunch program developed.
  2. Develop my ability to dialogue individuals at all levels of this policy: politicians, community leaders, and schools.
  3. Explore the roots of this social welfare policy and establish best practices to increase efficiency and nutritional content.
