National School Lunch Program
A program in the United States giving subsidies to schools in order to provide free or low-price lunches to eligible children. The NSLP was created in 1946 both to feed underprivileged children and to stabilize food prices for farmers. Counting the number of children eligible for the NSLP is one way of measuring poverty in an area.
