Mayfield families can't afford it, but people who have done something with their lives can.

Yes lunches should be free. That is the only square meal alot of kids get every day. The school supplies are RIDICILIOUS please why should i have to send paper towels and kleenex?????????? The school should provide theese things and for the small ammounts of food the kids get on their plates by all means it should be free.

where do you get it that the schools get this food free? You need to get a little better educated before you speak and show your ignorance, they have to pay for the food they are serving the children, so why would they just give it away. Grow up get a job and pay your own way.

This is such a bleeding heart liberal view here. Why have free lunches???? Why not free everything. Hell, the parents that need free food for thief kids draw a check and get their shit free so why not put a larger burden on us working people and pay for free lunches. How about get responsible and get a damn job?!?!?! Oh, that's right, let's just have it free. This is what's wrong with our damn country right now.....fucking liberals!!!!!!!

Nothing is free. Mayfield receives a US government grant that we as tax payers pay for. I am sure that Graves would get the same grant if they qualified. Otherwise, it would come out of the county's tax payer's pockets.
And it wouldn't be cheap... 4,500 Graves students eating twice a day for 180 days. If each meal was just $2.50, we are talking about $4,000,000 in additional revenue the county would have to raise. And I believe that number would be conservative and growing yearly as inflation rises.
So, in the end... it can be either paid up front or at tax time - but no matter, it won't be free.

Um excuse me... Who r u to say Mayfield families can't afford it? Wow really I'm pretty sure there r people at Graves who can't afford lunch either. So it's stupid to judge just because you r black or Mexican or etc you don't have to be POOR! I'm pretty sure you yourself ain't well off :-) so have a nice day who ever u are!

Actually the school system does pay for the food that children eat.
It isn't free for the school system. Someone has to pay for the food!

The amount of food is by government standards! Most children that do come thru the lunch lines throw most of the food away. And it is not because it is distasteful it is because parents do not have good eating standards at home. They most likey go thru fast food restaruants and do not prepare meals at home.

This is definetly a great subject...im with all these others why should it be free cause u would rather spend money on yourself than ur child to eat..I bet half the kids in some of these school systems thats the only meals they have.because their parents are drug addicts! Ridiculous
