Really??? Millions in Hurricane Relief sent to your area...tax payers pay for the schools, the teachers, the food, but instead of putting the food in the mouths of the kids that are hungry and can't pay...you would throw perfectly good food away? Heartless. Everyone is seeing this. Someone needs to explain Humanity and Charity to these people http://foxnewsinsider.com/2013/09/05/nj-schoo...

What's the difference,the Dept of Education,throws away our taxes on "worthless leftist teachers"who indoctrinate instead of educate our children,so why should the food matter....Kids are starving for real education as well as the food.....both are being wasted!....

It would seem that many parents who are able to pay don't. They abuse the system and in the process teach their kids how to work the system.
Instead they should bill the parents.
Pretty sad you can't even run a school cafeteria!
When I was a kid a very few got free lunches. Everyone else brought lunch or paid. Cash and carry. Many of these so called parents are just to lazy to make their kid lunch.
I knew a woman who was a Catholic Lay teacher.
2nd day of school a kids mom wanted to know about the free lunch program. "The kid was in the school under a scholarship program in Philly." She told her that there was none. She demanded to speak to the principal. He told her the same thing. She pulled the kid from a good school and but him back in the public system for the free lunch!
You breed em you feed em!

My wife is a school teacher,our schools even feed the students during the summer months.And these kids parents get ebt cards to buy them better food then what I can afford.What the parents do,is sell the privilegege of their ebt cards for money,then they buy alcohol,drugs and cigarettes with the money.Some sell their ebt use,then they take the money to the casino's,while the taxpayers take another hit in the wallet,for their abuse of the generosity of hard working tax payers.The welfare system needs revamped,so that able folks on do some kind of work to "earn"what they get,then they would appreciate where itr comes from,and not rip off the system.But we have the welfare queen in office right now,and since he has been in there,the rolls have severly grown,to almost half the population on the dull....Just like the Left and obama wants it to beeeeeeee!Can we say "SOCIALISM"is almost or is it here!........

It is overpriced and junk for the most part. To waste it is unreal. I live win Willingboro.

I never understood the money factor as we qualified for free lunch yet my Mom made a meal for me everyday. It was usually left over dinner with a rice side(hey its cheap but tastes great with so many other foods). The kids always had the option of peanut butter and jelly with no questions asked at my school. This is the SAME city that claims it will be a "blue ribbon school" yeah ok. With the kids hungry and some maybe only eating at school or 1 of 2 meals a day.

I agree-selling EBT cards drives me INSANE I saw it and jsut was in shock that it was so easy. Anyone caught should have child taken away. To take food out of their mouths! I was at Aldi and had a EBT receipt for seafood and fish. I was buying rice and cheap items.

Nothing like teaching them early how to get a hand out. Lunch program in debt by $50,000? Somebody has been asleep at the wheel. I am willing to bet many of these kids don't qualify for the free lunch. But the entitlement people want it all.

Thomas Sowell title for his news paper column said;"Obama is the greatest phony!And he is things are getting "worse"our stature in the world is diminishing day by day.We are a debter "NATION" for the first time in our history,we barrow money from a "COMNMUNIST"country, who if ever calls our debt,we are "finished"on the World stage...Our gross national product is the lowest in my lifetime,we import more then we export.We used to feed the World five times over,we now import fourty percent of our food!.All because the "LIBERALS"want us to be fair in the "GLOBAL"MARKET,so that meams, we surrender our wealth,to make it fair,and then we can suffer like they used too!.We have lost so much of our society to be inlign with all the other "SOCIALIST"countries to join a one World Government at any cost,our freedom,borders,military,and any hardship to us.And Obama is leading the charge,thats why you see all this stagnet growth,and all the doom and gloom going on.It's a lie!,all of it,and when we get to rock bottom,you will be asked to make a choice,join the World Community,or starve....I've said it before and I will say it again,the worst is yet to come,if we don't take a stand,our Country,our home is gone!..And it only took fourty years of hard drugs,and Liberalism to bring it all down...While we were partying like it was 1999,the Liberals were hard at work behind the scenes destroying us....Something our enemies couldn't do!...Waste in the cafiteria,how about the 'NATION"We threw away........Thats a far worse waste to me!....
