"School children. Her kids prefer to eat the lunches the school provides with all their friends, but the cost of meals, which are increasing by 50 cents this year, makes it prohibitive, both lunches that the schools provide are really good. They're hot, they're fresh, but almost ten bucks a day for each kid to eat, you know, 20 bucks a day. It just adds up pretty quickly. Earlier this summer, Congress sought to pass a bill that would provide another year of universal free meals. Supporters said Congress could fully pay for it for one more year. Without placing the cost on taxpayers, generally Republicans are united against universal free meals, even temporary ones. They argue it would be too expensive. Congress never intended to provide universal free breakfast and lunches to all K12 students regardless of need. That's representative Virginia Fox. A GOP member from North Carolina who leads the House education and labor committee during a floor speech debating the waiver extensions in June. By returning these programs back to normal, we can uphold our responsibility to taxpayers and the principle that aid should be targeted and temporary. Recently, 5 states passed legislation to provide free meals to students, California is the biggest, but advocates say federal action is needed. They hope The White House makes a push for universal free meals following a conference on hunger nutrition and health next month. Until then, parents like gamma and crumbling will be facing tough choices to feed their kids. What does summer taste like around the world?

"Going to take a look now at two sides of life in the Gaza Strip. It's been just a week since a brief but deadly battle between Israel and Gaza militants that Palestinians say killed at least 49 people in Gaza. These conflicts have become a grim fact of life for people there. And we'll hear how they're recovering. Then we'll look at one thing that has improved after years of effort, giving people in Gaza some daily relief. But first we'll start with NPR's fatma tennis in Gaza City high fatma. Hi, Daniel. So we've seen this pattern over the last 15 years deadly Israeli air strikes on Gaza, Palestinians, firing rockets, what stands out about the three day conflict that took place last weekend. So this was a relatively confined battle between Israel and the small militant group Islamic Jihad, while Hamas, the bigger group that controls Gaza, stayed out of it and Israel did not appear to be targeting them. Now Israeli officials say this is a military success for them, it began the fighting with attacks on Islamic Jihad militants that they say were preparing attacks. Israel says it killed 20 militants, but they also acknowledged that at least 7 civilians were killed by Israeli air strikes, but they say several of the others who died were actually hit by Islamic Jihad rockets that fell short into Gaza. And Israel says around a thousand rockets where fired from Gaza, but air defenses protected Israel. Yeah, and so there was not a single death in Israel because of the air defense is there. What about in Gaza? In Gaza, there were some buildings destroyed, many children were killed at least 17, many others were injured. I actually met a young boy whose two legs were broken when he and his 5 year old sister were out taking a walk and the Israeli strikes began and she actually died. But this time, the physical damage was relatively limited in comparison to other wars, the big impact was really the emotional and psychological trauma this caused to people who are repeatedly living under attack and they know it's not going to end here. And yet we've seen this in past wars, it's a fact of life in Gaza. That daily life goes back. People return to their routines, but what are you seeing on the streets? That's right. You know, the cloud of what happened last week remains hanging and is palpable when you talk to people here. There was a recent vigil at chiffa hospital. That's the main hospital complex here for the children that were killed. And there are still a lot of wounded people at hospitals all around the city, including some severe injuries. But at the same time, as you mentioned, you know, the city is back up and running, stores are open. It's now the weekend. I've already passed by at least four weddings, restaurants are absolutely packed, and you can see people swimming at the beach. That's NPR's fadma tennis in Gaza. Thanks fama. Thank you. That image of people back on the beach brings me to the story, I wanted to tell from my own recent trip to Gaza. As NPR correspondent in the Mideast. It's easy to forget Gaza is on the Mediterranean coast. The sea is the one escape people in Gaza have from a tough daily life in between the wars, living under blockade by Israel and Egypt, with widespread poverty. But even the sea has not been a safe place for many years, because raw sewage has been dumped into the sea. For years, most of Gaza's beaches were deemed too dangerous for swimming. Imagine living a short walk away from the Mediterranean Sea and not even dipping a toe inside

"gaza strip" Discussed on Tribe Talk Connection
"Gdp went up from eighty dollars a person to seventeen hundred dollars a person. So there's a huge improvement in their economic lot in nineteen sixty seven. When israel takes gaza. Eighteen percent of the homes are connected to the electric grid and very very quickly. Israel puts gaza on its own electric grid and eighty nine percent of the homes around the grid. So on a lot of ways. The condition economically of arabs pope in gaza and the west bank as well improves very significantly. But we should not ignore the fact that poverty in gaza is still rife and things are also pretty problematic in the west bank bill. They're not quite as bad as they are in gaza so we have arafat coming to the un seventy four seventy five the un votes. That zionism is racism and then in nineteen eighty eight. Were leaping forward ahead a decade or so hamas is created and hamas which now rules gaza in twenty. Twenty has a very smart way of going about things they do it very similarly to the way that hezbollah works in southern lebanon. Which is if they are not simply a military organization. They're a militarization but also a social services organization so they provide food and they provide health services and they provide education and they have obviously a very extreme military wing but with the brilliant move about providing social services does is that actually buys the loyalty of the local population because without kamaz. Who's going to educate our kids without kamaz who's going to provide doctors and so forth and hamas by the way is explicit that its purpose is not to get free from israel in the gaza strip. It's they are explicit to this very day. By the way that their purpose is to destroy the state of israel that can be no zionist entity as they call it and they were between the river and the c meaning the jordan river and the mediterranean seat in july of nineteen eighty-eight jordan from which is really captured. The west bank in the six day war says we don't want it back in other words. They renounce any claim to the west bank and now the palestinians recognize there in no-man's-land jordan doesn't want them back they are controlled by israel. But don't really wanna be controlled by israel and this is just basically heating up more and more and more now brenda's the first intifada as it's commonly called beginning begins really at the very very end of nineteen eighty-seven that the region is heating up. There's no question. Tensions arising on both sides but in december nineteen eighty-seven in israeli truck driver accidentally runs over for arab workers in the gaza strip. It was clearly an accident. There's really no question anymore. Today it was the bay back in the day but it was. It was just a horrible traffic accident and four palestinians were killed but that unleashed years and years and years of frustration and anger on the part of palestinians and in this uprising. Intifada basically means in arabic and uprising. There are massive protests rocks being thrown at soldiers molotov cocktails being thrown that idea of soldiers. It's very important to point out that for the most part this intifada. This uprising is directed at israel's security services. It is not directed at israeli civilians. There's some exceptions to that. But by march this is a mess wave of protests against israel's presence in the west bank and the gaza strip israel has taken completely by surprise. It's it's held the west bank and gaza now for twenty years. Really hasn't been a problem. As far as israel was concerned rather blindly on israel's part by obviously responds by basically putting eighty thousand soldiers on that particular issue..
