Students at 24 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools will eat free next year, regardless of family income. The schools, among the district’s poorest, will serve breakfast and lunch to all students for free starting in the fall under a new program from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Community Eligibility Provision is an amendment to the National School Lunch program, designed to improve access to healthy meals for students in low-income schools. Students at the qualifying schools will be automatically enrolled in the free meal program and will not need to submit a paper application. .....

Dear Forsyth County,

You’re welcome.

Signed, –Taxpayer

P.S. Where in the constitution did we authorize the USDA to take my money to buy everyone two meals?

All part of the plan. Get people to believe government will supply you with your sustenance and then you become its slave.

People who can afford remittances to their “home country,” camera phones, designer sneakers, bling, etc. can afford to feed their children etc. This is just a case of blatantly gaming the system.

Either feed them all for free or end the program. Just like with Social Security. No means test, it just divides the kids. Besides food is not that expensive.

Now there are some programs that need to end: Climate change for one, bailouts for automakers and banks, grants to fake green energy companies. We could buy oodles and oodles of food for what is wasted in these boondoggles.

Yes, they must be fed for “free” because they’re all so obviously lacking in caloric intake, lol. We’ve got the fattest “poor” people on the planet.

Two free meals a day at school should mean a significant drop in the amount of food stamps given to those families.

But it won’t.

You’ve hit upon the actual reason for this. They’re removing obstacles to children of illegal aliens.

Could it be that two government Michelle Obama school lunches will barely equal one non-Michelle Obama government school lunch? This is be a back door way to subidize the M.O. lunch program.

Exactly

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is a letterhead, and an office and people pushing papers ... they don't generate a penny, let alone be able to provide a 'program'

big deal, food is cheap, climate control is not, and is a lie besides, green energy is another expensive lie, foreign aid to murderous dictators is another rathole and so on and so forth.

Soon the government will be building subsidized housing without kitchens.

Someday everyone will but the elite will be fed at the government food tents.

Rural areas and small towns will be de-populated as people are moved to urban areas where the government handout centers are located.

Disenters and food hoarders will be eliminated as domestic terrorists.

The meme makes the rounds occasionally on Facebook:

It's been posted by friends of mine with school-age children. Any response I might have would be a personal insult too offensive to contemplate.

I was making a Hillary joke, IF that was alright with you. I forgot to check. I am sorry. I am sure the mods will ban me, or fine me, for not making sure that it was okay with you first.

No one eats ‘free.’

The meals are paid for via taxation of working Americans.

How do they feel about feeding other people’s kids?

With food stamp usage at all time highs, why do we have to prepare their meals too?

Ah, government. As our Founders warned us, it will always attempt to expand, no matter what the culture, government type, era, or circumstances.

"You will NOT pay for this food, even if you are willing and able, because that one over there cannot! Therefore, we will make an overreaching and all-encompassing program that forces everyone to have the same thing, at the same cost, no matter their personal preference... and we will take from everyone, no matter their level of interest or participation, to pay for it (plus overhead, fraud, waste, union skims, politicians' kickbacks, etc etc etc)"

Just food? What about clothes, shoes, Christmas gifts, allowance, piano lessons and Disney World trips? How about tucking them in at night and kissing boo-boos Don’t they care?
