    Whoever said there’s no such thing as a free lunch has never dined with Uncle Sam.

    Even as the nation teeters on the edge of the fiscal cliff, the feds have found $30 million in extra lunch money to shower on city schoolchildren in the name of hurricane relief.

    New York City’s 1.1 million public-school students can each get a free school lunch every day in December (and could have last month, too) — even if their homes were undamaged by the superstorm or they have no financial need.







    New York Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, who pushed for the funding, say that the blanket offer was meant to cut red tape for families hurt by Sandy.

    “It would have taken so long to process all the requests if we had limited the recipients,” said a Gillibrand spokeswoman. “So we said: Let’s just open it up for all kids.”

    Instead of going to areas where everyone was hit by the hurricane.
