Yeah, amazing! Where does the money come from for that? They claim any child will fed. Will they check IDs? Nonsense

Not nonsense just a great program for children that miss meals during the summer. Don't really care where the money comes from as long as children are fed. Just because you are in a certain income bracket doesn't mean you are a great parent. There are tons of "latch key" kids at home that don't qualify for free lunch but still have empty cabinets! Not the kids fault so why not feed them.

I understand that this is a free program and I don't mind using tax money to help feed kids. But what really makes me mad is I pay my child's lunch money every week but if she runs out before the week is up and wants a water or Gatorade they want let her have it because she doesn't have the money when they know that I am going to pay every Friday. But they can give free food away over the summer.

You need to think about being grateful for being able to pay. I agree with lunchlady. No kid needs to go hungry....and there are many of them. A great program for a kid's well being.
