    2. Here is how I would write it, although there can be other variations as well. Overall your article is understandable with few small errors. One sentence I would suggest changing is “but because of their humiliation for their parents can’t pay for lunch money” because it feels like it is insinuating the children are placing blame on the parents. Also I omitted the sentence “and school lunch system make child should ask to for their parents to get lunch money.” I was not sure how to include it, but if you feel that it is extremely important you can put it back in. I may have gotten a bit too far at the end. This article is about free lunch for all children in the public school system. The free lunch program ensures that more children will get proper nutrition during the school day. In New York City, three quarters of public school students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. However, because some children are uncomfortable with the idea that they have to resort to discounted lunch while their peers do not, they may forgo eating lunch entirely. Adding to that, some schools deny meals to older students who are unable to pay. Because of these policies, many children who are eligible for free lunches do not receive them. Hunger from missing meals can inhibit a student’s ability to learn, and good nutrition is important for their growth. It is important that we understand the importance of food for children who are unable to afford it, and finding a way for public school students to have free lunches is beneficial not only to them, but to society. Feel free to suggest any ideas you might have! :)

It means that the presence of Kushner at a meeting would force the other officials also at the meeting to avoid talking about sensitive subjects that Kushner does not have the clearance to know about. Or he may be asked to leave those meetings completely when they start discussing sensitive information. That "find himself asked to" phrase in the sentence only relates to the first part (before the "or") and not the second part. It is a little confusingly written in my opinion.

    2. "I was forced to please and smile at a little girl like you." ----> "I was forced to smile at and please a little girl like you." Because you please AT someone, it is more natural to order the sentence with the intransitive verbs first. It's a very minor thing though, your usage isn't incorrect.
