• at least they get to eat
  • I think its a sad situation. Even sadder if its on white bread! I don't understand. If they're poor they should qualify for free lunch. If not they should pay their bill. No child should have to deal with that. If they can't take care of their kids maybe DHR/DHS should get involved.

      I wonder how many can't pay versus how much just don't wanna pay. And I think that if the parents don't like the kids getting a jelly sandwich, then make your kids a lunch to take with them. Or better yet, if you can't afford kids, either keep your legs together or keep your junk in your pants.

      Another case of entitlement issues - why pay if I don't have to? What? My kids will have to pay? Sure! Throw them under the bus! Leaves me more chump change to be a bigger chump with! It really pisses me off when people make their children pay the price for their crimes! And yes, for those who actually don't know not paying your bills is a crime!

      Yeah, why worry about it? The school will pay for it, not the taxpayers. The school has a money tree growing in the custodian's office.
  • Chances are the school had a few extra portions left over anyway, and I doubt many kids will look forward to getting their free jelly sandwich after several days. Sounds like a scene from "Oliver!" Please , sir, I want some more.

      Maybe then the kids will tell their parents, "Hey mom, how about paying the damn bill or letting me pack my lunch. I'm getting tired of jelly sandwiches everyday."
  • I always paid for my kid's lunches when they were in elementary school, but the school's administration was too unorganized to keep track, so I still got notices that there was a balance. I guess sometimes the people cashing my checks took a few weeks to tell the people who write the bills. Whatever - I think it's a good idea in principle, but in practice, the schools have their heads too far up their own asses to make this effective. And by the way, Warwick schools reversed that policy after it made the news. I guess facing negative PR was more of a problem than balancing the lunch money budget anyway.

      Until it's time to pass a new levy. How about the parents face the bad publicity for not feeding their own damn kids.
