Recently I have heard people debating school lunches. Not having heard any of the facts or the arguments here is my opinion.
Pack your kid a lunch. It is bad enough that I without any children am robbed of my money to give to the schools. School taxes should be limited to those whom have chosen to have children. Please don't shoot the argument down my throat that "it benefits everyone to have smarter children", smarter children are made at home not in schools. Democrats are made in schools.
Empty out the soup kitchen, sell the very expensive equipment, eliminate the daily along with legacy costs of Flo, the lunch lady and all of her broom riding mop pushing minions. Use the damn money generated there to hire another teacher (baby sitter) and use the space to help with class room overcrowding,
There are already laws in place that say parents have to feed the children. There are already social programs that provide food for the needy. When they are old enough they can pack the lunch for themselves until then, either have the old enough child do it or get up in the morning and ensure it happens.
