When I was a kid in the 1960’s and 70’s our food was wonderful. Almost all homemade. When I was in grade school there were only about 4 or 5 kids on “free lunches”. And they had to work in the cafeteria to get theirs “free”. I really am not very happy with the citizens today. A bunch of freeloaders all around. And talk about being poor. Most everyone was poor. But our parents PAYED for our food, clothing, health care,and homes. Not todays people. They are horrible.

I am starting to believe schools like to get as many on ‘free lunches’ as possible. I think they turn a profit from it. Maybe I’m wrong but that is what I suspect.

When kiddo was small the schools would send home papers for me to fill out because he was a military brat— we usually always lived off base. I didn’t want to live on base.

We never took any free lunches but I suspect many did. Also, when we moved from one state and kiddo was enrolled in another school, in another state....we kept getting notices threatening to take us to court from his old school.

For what? Truancy!!! This mess went on for over two years! Even after many calls and thinking it was cleared up. I have always suspected that the school did it on purpose to collect the extra $$ they get for children of military.(that’s what I was told those papers I filled out were about)

They wanted to keep that money coming even though kiddo was long withdrawn from their school and enrolled in another school, in another state. Maybe they were THAT stupid, inefficient and unorganized but it is my opinion it was for a reason.
