To encourage healthful eating, Chicago school doesn't allow kids to bring lunches or certain snacks from home and some parents, and many students, aren't fans of the policy
A Little Village Academy student cringes at an enchilada dish served at his school. Many students throw away their entrees uneaten and say they would rather bring food from home. The school, though, does not allow students to bring in their own lunches, unless they have a medical condition or a food allergy.

“... depend on the federal school lunch cash...”
You are absolutely correct... follow the money. Whether the kids eat free, reduced fee or bring their own, the cafeteria is losing money. I would get a medical note in a hurry rather than have my kids eat that slop. IMHO
Baaaaaaaa. Baaaaaaaaa. Baaaaaaaa.
Come on, little programmed sheep -- bleat for us some more.
The quality of school lunches is barely above animal feed. They use the cheapest, most disgusting ingredients possible. I would not allow my kids to eat that crap, my kids bring thier lunch, if such a policy comes here, we move, period.
They’d probably be shocked you wanted to pay for it and weren’t demanding the school provide it for free.
But they ARE required to use the pus to make sweat and sour dipping sauce, so at least there is no waste...
I’d take my child out of that school!
Did you read the Principal’s Page? It’s barely coherent.
Mystery meat! Yum!
Correction. I made them pay for it. Haha. They are the ones that wanted to see how many I could eat. I ran it off in gym class next block anyway (and then at bball practice).
So if you are Catholic and they dont serve fish on Fridays during lent sue on a 1st Amendment religious free exercise grounds. If you are a non-Lent observer and they only serve fish on Fridays during lent, sue on 1st Amendment religious establishment grounds.
The MONEY quote is that the school makes money by kickbacks to the meal provider and all the transport, supply and delivery of the meals. That’s how they justify raising taxes. The POOR children can’t “afford” breakfast, lunch and in some cases dinner provided by the government for the little future parasites to look to momma government from cradle to grave care.
That's why it's welfare.
But since there's no means testing, what the heck. Use it. Quality govt education and babysitting, what could be wrong with that.
Please refain from "gravy train" and use " High-speed Healthy Train for the Children" from now on. thank you, MSM Presstitute.
How are you going to enforce communist dictatorship if you let the little people take care of themselves. First, you have to ensure their 100% dependency.
lol! Too funny!
Well roughly 20% of us don’t deserve it.
But anyway, this song says it best
This is too much. Where’s the ACLU?
Stupid (bleep) Principal. The kids aren’t gonna eat eat your subsidized crap food, then they’ll go and gorge themselves on all that “bad” stuff you don’t like cause they’re (bleep) starving when you finally let them leave.
You want them to lose weight? Let them play outside for an hour or 2 a day instead of keeping them in class to be brainwashed and given busy work you stupid twit.
“Finally in social studies we learned about Christopher Columbus and Mexicos Independence Day.”
Wow. Just - wow...
Did you see this in the article?
Any school that bans homemade lunches also puts more money in the pockets of the district's food provider, Chartwells-Thompson. The federal government pays the district for each free or reduced-price lunch taken, and the caterer receives a set fee from the district per lunch.
Chicago school bans some lunches brought from home
Remember spring 1995 the Democrats held "Don't starve school children" rallies on the capital steps to protest budget cuts in federal school lunch program? I actually drove down (about 25 minutes) to see that one, Jesse Jackson and the BCC live.
“Let them play outside for an hour or 2 a day instead of keeping them in class to be brainwashed and given busy work you stupid twit.”
Nail, meet hammer!
The ACLU was too busy burning Bibles, aborting babies, pushing for “reparations”, and making sure parents who force their kids to pretend disabilities in order to live their lives on the dole are protected from prosecution.
Yeah typical Chi town. Though I’m sure it happens elsewhere as well.
