Wow! Opening schools in the summer so kids can get free lunch? When are parents going to be held responsible for the children they chose to have? Why do those of us who actually pay taxes have to keep footing the bill for the irresponsible breeders? If you cannot afford to feed your children they should be removed from your custody!! Actually if you cannot afford to provide for all of a child's needs you should NOT have one!! Maybe if the government would stop the handouts poor people would stop breeding!! I'm tired of working to support idiots!

I understand your frustration, but what about the kids? What do you offer as a "real" solution?

I would just like to say that this first "summer feeding" was offered to kids who's parents paid $150 per child to participate in a two week long fine arts summer camp called S.I.Y.A. So please, don't bash us. I cannot speak for all the parents, but I work hard and so does my husband. We don't try to get handouts, and it was nice not having to send money for our daughter to have lunch while taking part in this program. I don't know about all the "summer feeding" events so I don't want to act like an expert. I'm not trying to get anyone upset, just hoping to add some insight to this particular open cafeteria event. Thanks.

They should make this a free lunch/agricultural studies program students could learn farming and grow the food they will eat, and possibly cook the food they will eat. How does the old saying go? Show a man how to fish....

I guess kids are like goats. You shake the can of corn and you hear the baaaaaas baaaaaas as the goats come to get their treat. Liberalism breeds human goats.
