WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is pushing to provide full days of meals to all American schoolchildren with a bill that would create a free school-based food program nationwide.

On Thursday, the senator introduced the Universal School Meals Program Act, which would provide federal funding and a mandate that all public school districts in the U.S. provide breakfast, lunch and dinner to all students free of charge.
