The new, Trump-era rules are aimed at reducing food waste, the USDA said in a press release. The proposal would make “it easier for schools to offer school lunch entrees for a la carte purchase,” allow “schools adjust fruit servings and making it simpler to offer meats/meat alternates,” and would allow schools to “offer more vegetable varieties.”
