A Florida school district is considering a plan to install surveillance cameras on cafeteria trash cans to monitor what kids are throwing away after they discovered that students were tossing out their federally-mandated fruit and vegetables.
The Lake County School Board said more than $75,000 worth of vegetables have been thrown in the garbage. The veggies and fresh fruit are party of the Obama administrations policy to force schools to provide healthy produce in lunch rooms.

I’d tell my kids to wrap them up in napkins first...
Welcome to 1984
...at least they aren’t tossing salads.
Why not just look into the trash cans and see what has been thrown in?
In elementary school back in the 1950’s, I would stuff those awful stewed tomatoes into my empty milk carton because the school principal would stand over the trash cans to check our trays.
Then the kids should just throw them under the lunch table rather than be subjected to Big Brother’s telescreens.
Because they want to punish the children who threw theirs away.
,,,,, and don’t forget ,,, the “brown bag police” will be checking lunches brought from home as well .
Maybe they can name this the Stasi Can Cam.
One local talk show host bemoaned the death of the Soviet Union because we would no longer have them as a bad example: "Trash can cam? Don't they have those in the USSR? [Thick Russian accent] Comrade, did you just throw away beet? Do you want to go to gulag or revolutionary psychiatric hospital?"

I’d tell my kids to give the camera the finger as they dump their veggies.
,,,,,, all we are is just another brick in the wall .
If Michelle weren’t so huge none of this would be happening.
maybe Big Sis can get DHS involved ,too..

When I was in elementary school the fruit in school lunches was canned pears at least twice a week. They were so disgusting, I still won’t eat pears today, too many bad memories of slime masquerading as food.
...at least they arent tossing salads.
No, that would be encouraged!
Is this training for future TSA agents?
How can you have a free cell phone if you don’t eat your Veggies?!
Maybe B.O. can get a job as a cafeteria monitor after the election. (oh, sorry, not qualified)
Kids getting a most instructive lesson in government power all for the price of some veggies.
