This news segment for Houston’s KPRC-TV captures a meeting of the Houston Independent School District Board of Trustees. At the meeting, Howard D. Moon presents the results of his study on the need for a free lunch program. Later, he tells reporters how reimbursements from the state and federal government will pay for the program. HISD, then the sixth-largest school district in the country, joined the National School Lunch Program in 1968.
