Free schools meals could be offered in all States-funded primary schools.
The suggestion will be debated as part of the Government Plan later this month.
If agreed, nearly £600,000 will be spent on giving all eligible students a hot meal each day, and on the facilities needed for schools to serve them.
The two-year long trial began in September 2019, with £200,000 put aside to support Caring Cooks to deliver healthy meals in schools.
Deputy Rob Ward says expanding this programme will provide long term, sustainable employment with significant positive social impact.
He says around 1,000 children a day go without a hot meal because of family financial struggles or inadequate cooking facilities at home.
