    Goes on:

    This type of attitude is indicative of the practice of sending children to school without lunch, running up a delinquent tab, expecting kids to be eligible for free hot pastrami on rye and then protesting when all they get is a "cold cheese sandwich".

    Here it is a bowl of cereal and toast if a child repeatedly "forgets" their lunch money. A free lunch program IS in place and the parameters for those who qualify are high IMO. Either way every family is asked to fill out the application even if you WILL NOT qualify since the school gets a credit based on the amount of children enrolled. All it would take is to fill out the small piece of paper if you cannot afford lunch-- but they do not fill it out then complain when their child is given cereal instead of the hot lunch for the day.

    Toasted cheese sandwich is better. I hope it's light cheese too.

    For the kids that forget their lunch money, do the mothers expect the school to give their kids filet mignon with port wine demiglace, argula salad with candied walnuts and crumbled gorgonzola, twice baked garlic mashed potatoes, and tiramisu?

    FUCK NO!

    Cheese sandwiches are yummy!

    I saw two women interviewed on Fox.. With of course these opposing viewpoints.. The children were fed cold cheese sandwiches. After repeatedly being sent to school without their lunch money and without their parent filling out the necessary paperwork to receive reduced price or free lunches..Personally I love cheese sandwiches and don't see the need here for victimhood,, rather it goes right back to a parent doing what is best for the child.. fill out the papers, send the money,, or gosh almighty damn,, pack your child a lunch.. homecooking is the best cooking.

    It makes not a bit of sense IMO. They do not want their children "stigmatized”, “because all the kids know what a cold cheese sandwich means" but will not life a freaking pen up and fill out the application!

    I volunteer at a shelter, I would like to know why the homeless and anyone else benefiting (as long as they are of sound body) are not asked to ladle soup or pack a few grocery bags for an hour to benefit first? It would help immensely if we had more help!

    Nope, no offers, just complaints-- it's cold, not enough bread, I don't like milk, I want soda!!! GMAFB

    Fucking bitches! I sometimes eat cheese sandwiches.

    The purpose of lunch is so that you have something in your belly to hold your through till dinner.

    If it happens to just two pieces of bread and a single dill pickle, just shove it in and keep on movin'!

    They think it "humiliates" them that they have to be singled out by eating something different then the paying kids. This PC bullcrap is annoying as hell IMO. Life is hard and the sooner the kids figure it out the better. Kids today are such wimps :lol:
