With schools starting back up for the new year, we discuss the nation’s free school lunch program, how it’s changed, and why one Wisconsin school district is buying back in to the extended ‘Seamless Summer Option.’ Then an author makes the case that we can benefit from embracing our anger.

Waukesha And The National School Lunch Program
We talk with an expert on public health and the history of school lunch and nutrition programs, about the effectiveness of the current national school lunch program’s ‘Seamless Summer Option’ during the pandemic, and why Waukesha’s school board had initially opted out of the program that offers free lunch to students of all household incomes — not just low-income.
Understanding Anger And How To Use It For Good
We talk with a UW-Green Bay psychology professor about his new book on anger, and how it can be used for positive change. We also talk a bit about how race and gender shape society’s perceptions of who is allowed to get angry.
