Stigma and School Free Lunch Programs

The N.Y. Times has a new article on the stigma associated with free lunch programs that are structured in ways that make recipients identifiable relative to other students; this problem echoes the problems of food stamps pre-EBT cards and such similarity does suggest a solution.  The article is: Carol Pogash, "Free Lunch Isn't Cool, So Some Students Go Hungry," NYTimes (Mar. 1, 2008).
