Daily free lunch for under 18 yrs. given at local parks consists of sandwich or salad, chocolate milk, fruit, sun chips. Garbage cans are overflowing.
Carmel is an upper middle class neighborhood north of Indianapolis. An old joke about Carmel: What does a Carmel housewife make for dinner? Reservations!
Less food for the chirrens means.....more food for the Yeti.
No doubt the black market for junk food is flourishing.
My main take-away from this is that taxpayers are forced to pay for this food for them and they just throw it away, because it is free.
Not sympathetic to their complaints that they are hungry after throwing away free veggies.
They get a three-quarters cup of vegetables, but if its something they dont like, it goes down the garbage disposal.”
Clearly shows the need for a govt monitor to sit at the lunch table with the kids and force them to eat their mandated quota. This will teach them that there is nothing wrong with tyranny if its for their own good.
When kids are hungry enough, they will eat what’s put in front of them, vegetables included. Obviously, they ARE getting fed enough at home or they would eat the school food.
The kids aren't being fed fresh-cooked food. It's mostly manufactured stuff sent in individual wrapping. Some of it's borderline edible and nutritional....some of it, McDonald's could put together a better meal with their healthiest choices.
My youngest will be a HS Junior this fall (how did they happen so fast?) and I have packed lunches for him (and his 4 older siblings) ALL thru their school years. What I packed was NEVER a problem til the last school year. A “healthy eating” memo was sent home to all non-lunch ticket participants (along w/a second copy of the “reduced/free lunch” small town telephone book size application. The guidelines, (suggestions) no soda; no salty snacks; avoid processed meats yada yada. I did NOT follow their guidance a s still pack what he wants (large hoagie size sandwich; a bag of chips; grapes or a banana; something by Little Debbie and a Dr. Pepper or Mt. Dew). Since they took the pop machines out of the cafeteria. my son said he has been offered cash for his beverage. I’m waiting for an edict that he CAN’T bring non approved items to eat.
I have two school year left...
So, the school district, like all the other districts who should REALLY realize is that this government doesn’t have anyone’s best interests and welfare at heart.
This government is only concerned about power, control and obeyance, period. You know nothing; it knows best.
When eyes are open, thought is reasoned, and their “assistance” is refused, they show you exactly what they are all about - revenge and punishment.
They, this government, are not our friend in any conceivable way.
Looks like the students executed their own sequester.
Old Chinese proverb: "Hunger is the best sauce."
My kids got tired hearing that when they didn't eat supper and tried to raid the fridge. Forty years later, all I have to say is "Hunger . . ." and they all groan.
