Tampa religious academy sues Biden, Nikki Fried over school lunch program

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A Tampa religious school has filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden and Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, and several other federal officials, accusing them of “threatening…their ability to feed hungry children.” The school, Grant Park Christian Academy, said most of their students are low-income, minority children in Tampa.

At the center of the legal complaint is a recent change to federal policy. In January 2021, Biden directed the federal agencies to broaden how they applied civil rights protections to LGBTQ+ issues, in response to a 2020 U.S. Supreme Court decision.
