Sorry that is not the same at all. The President actually refers to the actual president; the City does not.

Which is why he packs his lunch 99.9% of the time. But, I have a friend who has 2 kids on free lunch and they complain about the portion sizes too.

That makes sense - it isn't that the meals themselves are profitable, but the percentage of kids in the school getting them is used as a factor in deciding other funding.

BTW - I'm fairly certain that tvguy is a guy.

My question to your friend would be.. are they taking..and eating..everything they are allowed too? I cannot speak for any other school but mine. If the child..any child free lunch or paid lunch.. took EVERYTHING they are allowed to take from my lunches.. they would more then likely get enough to eat for lunch. BUT.....most kids don't.

Only when one uses it to, in both instances. That's why I capitalized it. Who knew there were this many places basic grammar wasn't taught?

We have several kids who were getting free lunch who are now bringing home lunches. I let the parents know their child was eating very little. They aren't bringing in junk. It's usually a sandwich, yogurt, fruit and a juice.

The junk they sell at our school for breakfast is ridiculous--breakfast pizza, pancakes with syrup, donuts, etc. Maybe they need to stick to cereal and milk or oatmeal and fruit.
I would welcome that change with open arms but would are kids/students

Yes thank you for the update

Another thing to consider with the school lunches is the time the kids get to eat- it's easy to say they need to eat everything on their tray plus choices from a salad/garden bar, but with a 20 min lunch time, 10min being spent in line,they just dont have time to eat everything and enjoy it - especially the little ones (K-2, are THE SLOWEST eaters ever!) ANd the "new " choices are gross- creamed spinach in elementary school really, just mix fresh spinach in the salad. And the cutsey names are weird- rainbow chilli - what the heck is that?

Kids here are probably malnourished and obese at the same time, too much junk, sugar, and not enough action!

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I guess those on free/reduced lunch are not allowed to do that, they would have to take all the components of the school lunch.
It really is such a blatant waste of food, and an exercise in idiocy. I mean really not taking an apple cost $1 more than taking it and throwing it out

(that was a comment about the laws being followed, not those following them )

Don't kid yourself. I doubt she grew up there. She's a college student whose knowledge comes from reading too much Eloise when she was little and watching too much Sex in the City when she was big.

I'm going to The City tomorrow. It's not New York City, but it is "The City" to me.

I like this. Later I'm going to a different City. In the Car.

No, but odds are, there are a few kids in school that have one of those in their lunch bag.

The value of the USDA surplus food earmarked for the breakfast and lunch programs, and the federal cash subsidy paid , is more than it costs to produce the lunches.
