Just asking...

Funny I've been hearing of late that school lunch programs are vital because it's the only meal some of these kids get all day. My question: how do they survive all summer?

Not only that, but I wonder about kids on free lunch that own $150 sneakers, iPods, and smartphones.

They'll go to the boys and girls clubs or other non profits for the free meal programs there.

Oh, no -- your government is feeding them over the summer, too -- at the same schools.

Heck -- now it isn't just breakfast and lunch, sometimes it is dinner and there are even those who propose sending home rations for the weekend.

So we may sometimes leave some kids behind academically, but we certainly provide them the opportunity to eat on the taxpayer's dime.

Exactly, Hube. I never understood that, either. The only meal I ever ate at school was lunch. I always had breakfast at home. And a lot of times I would bring my own lunch, because the school food SUCKED.

The chicken nuggets especially didn't taste like chicken, that's for sure.

Backbacks are filled with food for weekends at some delaware schools. my bitch is my kid came home this year asking about "free lunch". apparently it has been so normalized now in the schools, he describes it like we are the fools who are paying. what pisses me is we never had this discussion of why there is free and reduced lunch. not too cool when you have recipients BROADCASTING their business of not having to pay, and we are the chumps. try telling a middle schooler about discretion, and non-judgement, when their real time world is some clown laughing and merry making the food bargain they got. feed them and they reproduce. only in America do we give it away, and they complain, sue, or say well you are supposed to. baby formula to high school and beyond.

Something I forgot to add: the chow mein at my elementary school was some of the nastiest s*** I've ever eaten. I don't even WANT to know what it actually was. All I know is that it was nasty.

LOL, Carl!
