Abstract: The children of today—the men and women of tomorrow—may be suffering from actual hunger; not the hunger of normal healthy youngsters, but that "hidden" hunger which occurs in situations where the child does not receive a nutritious diet. Today great stress is being placed on the educational aspects of the school lunch, both in North Carolina and in the country as a whole. It is recognized that the school lunch should be a part of a child's total educational experience. Before the lunchroom or cafeteria can be set up as an educational center it must fulfill the requirements for providing adequate and attractive food at economical cost for values received. Only then can it offer opportunity for guidance toward good health.
