One more step towards a liberal utopia. All Utica students, regardless of their economic situation, get free breakfast and lunch. It's bad enough that 75% already qualified for free or reduced meals. I'm not against helping those of us who are less fortunate, but come on! Why do we have to subsidize meals for those who can afford to pay?

I think it's great! People who have to pay for everything in this city have jobs and work hard. Because of that sometimes they don't qualify for a lot of things. Dosent mean they are less deserving of things.In fact it's about time everyone gets a break! Way to go Utica Schools!

Isn't the point of welfare, food stamps, etc. so the families can afford to provide basic necessities? If we were going to now feed the dependent children of those who receive benefits, are we going to reduce what the people receive in monthly benefits? What about the school supplies too. Where is this welfare money going??

This is wrong. Very wrong. We are continuing to move in the wrong direction. My husband and I work and make a comfortable income. Even so, we learned how to budget. Learning to budget is not something we are teaching those receiving benefits. With what is received the people should be able to provide breakfast and lunch.

This is a very sad state of affairs. Excuse me for being blunt, but you people getting benefits need to get it together and quit sucking the system dry. You think you are clever for working the system, but you are nothing more than jokes to the rest of us who work to earn what we have.

If you can't afford to feed your kids, quit having them. Simple.

It is a federal based program but it is still taxpayer money. NO ONE should get a free breakfast and lunch.

Your post is exactly the type of thinking that drove the city of Detroit to bankruptcy and will eventually take Utica down.

Nothing is free. Don't you get that? Someone is paying for these "free" meals and for the most part it is the people who create jobs, invest and contribute. When enough of those people are sick and tired of footing the bill, they leave. What then? Think Detroit.

Wow, this is a really deep thought. Where did you get your English degree? Hamilton? Colgate? Your prose is mind blowing. Great touch using all caps. It reinforces your thesis.

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

You are still paying for their lunch...and you will continue to pay for other people's kid's lunches as well...long after your kid's lunches have been cut off. Taxes have a funny way of working like that.
