The article reports on the planned integration of Henrico County's nine high schools in Richmond, Virginia into the National School Lunch Program. According to Deborah McFee, director of school food service for the county, the change is being driven by a need to provide more meals for student who qualify for free or reduced-price meals. In 2006, the school district ran a pilot at Highland Springs High School using U.S. federal income guidelines rather than county rules.
