"There's a nagging problem within school districts: that by and large, school f/s programs are not considered part of the mainstream education process," says consultant Tom Hinton.

Kara Flynn, a spokeswoman for the National Pork Producers Council, responded that this was "an anti-meat attack as usual," as PCRM is known to have a vegetarian bias. FRAC, an advocacy organization trying to get more children enrolled in school meal programs, describes PCRM claims as "absurd," since school lunches provide about one-third of a child's nutrient needs and are designed to meet USDA dietary guidelines.
