A mother came unglued because her childs tray was taken.
Hey mom how about getting off your duff, stop watching OWN and
make a lunch if you such deadbeat that you can't pay for your kids
Amazing lack of parenting skills by many parents here in LC.

Of the 16 million dollar budget quoted in the paper.....1 million is from snack bar sales, 3 million is carryover to next year to get the year started, which leaves 12 million to support the 5 million, yes that is correct 5 million meals served during the school year. With food costs, labor costs and benefits that comes to about $2.50 per meal. Hard to do at home, let alone for 5million meals!!! So, parents pay up!
