94 Percent of Schools Violate USDA Regulations

Ninety-nine percent of all U.S. public schools participate in the National School Lunch program.

An Agriculture Department survey indicated that 90 percent of parents foolishly believed that the food at their children's school was healthy. That could not be further from the truth.
