Kadena Town mayor wants free meals for all students

Date Posted: 2011-03-17

Hiroshi Toyama, the mayor of Kadena Town, has submitted a proposal to the Town Assembly that would grant all of the town’s elementary and junior high school students free lunches in the year ahead.

With Kadena Town’s 1,540 elementary and junior high school students, the tab would cost the town ¥6,024,000, but Toyama says it’s worth it. “We should support families who are bringing up children, and promote town planning in a way that makes bringing up children easier.”

Kin Town has, over the past fiscal year, had a limited free school meals plan for a limited number of children, such as those for the third child in the family. Kadena Town last year charged half price for school lunches. If the Town Assembly approves the mayor’s proposal, Kadena Town would be the first to offer free school meals without any conditions attached.

The Town Assembly meets late this month to make a decision March 28th. The new prices would go into effect April 1st.
