I think it's better than Hershey's. I've probably eaten over 20 bars. What's your name and I'll buy some from you.

The "slop" such as steamed veggies and baked meat is mandated from the government, not the district. Your taxes go no where for education right now. That is why there are so many cut backs. Perhaps you should take your concerns to a board meeting, not Topix.

While I feel there is a double standard at work when the kids are selling junk that they aren't supposed to have at school, my bigger question is what percentage of the sales does the school receive? I quit buying Girl Scout cookies when the corporate offices admitted that the kids only got 10% of the sales. If I feel like supporting the Girl Scouts, I will just send them a check directly. You can directly send a check to your local schools' athletic associations. If you want to support a different school program, call the principal and ask how to make the check out to and who to send it to. Cut out the middleman.

I am a officer of a PTO in a nearby county. Our school sells candy strictly for the PTO....which in turn uses that money for field trips, activities, awards and for materials that we don't have money to supply, such as books, reading materials etc. Believe it or not, the board of education in our county does not supply us with all the funds needed for our children. Its sad really. Without these funds a lot of our kids wouldn't get a field trip EVER because their parents can't afford the $5 or so it costsis per child to gonor would they get prizes for working so hard to achieve their goals. We sold chocolate bars and we got 50% of the money brought in. I hope this answers your question.

Btw....Haywood Yablome....that's a great idea. I never thought about that. And I know that most schools would appreciate that. Some wont have to buy all that chocolate anymore!
