I might agree with some here who are saying that some families live above their means while not focusing on necessities. However, is it better to have this food go to landfills or home with kids who can eat it? When you give something you give out of kindness. Whether or not the receiver is “in need” is for them to worry about. For as many who take more than they truly need, there are that many who really could use the boost but are too prideful. I would rather see food be used than thrown away, no matter what the circumstances. Not everyone makes enough to have a stay-home-mom. I was Blessed that way. Thank You, Heavenly Father. We never had labelled dresses & my Grandmother made most of mine. She had good taste & sewed Well. What a great idea!! Great idea!! There are so many reasons why so many kids are only getting fed at school and only on school days. This is NOT only in poor neighbourhoods! Hopefully, communications are continuously improved to ensure those kids are getting this help regularly.

My Q is…how much $$ do the parent’s receive in food stamps? They only have to make one meal a day…the school serves them breakfast n lunch…what’s the momma/daddy using the food stamps for? That’s the crime, right there! That is fantastic. It should not be an expectation though, the parents should be grateful that the cafeteria staff are willing to go out of their way to help other children where there is a need, instead of throwing it away. Wonderful people, and its a pilot program, so everyone really needs to thank them. That’s awesome, all food business should do this, or for liberty reason, so they won’t get sued they should pack everything thing and sale it for very cheat so people in need could eat Instead of putting good food in the garbage. It brakes my heat every time I got to the grocery store and I see the employee from the hot food section dumping fried chicken and other things into the garbage. At my former school, I noticed a little girl eating her table mates leftovers at lunchtime. After a few days of seeing this, I began buying her an extra lunch. She later told me she sometimes does not get breakfast or dinner. I reported this to the principal who in turn called Social Services. The problem was solved, but not for long. I was told the family moved with no forwarding address. I learned whenever they came down on the mom she would move. Heartbreaking.

Double edge sword! I’m all for feeding the children. Let them take the extra home…. but will there be enough for all the kids that need this extra meal? Will the school make more? Is it first come, first serve? If not, how do you determine which child gets the extra meal to take home? The other edge of the sword, why is the school making so much extra food that its come to this? Do they not know how to plan the correct number of meals? Perhaps they should take some lessons from military mess halls. It’s a good idea. A great idea actually. But, in today’s society, somebody will get sick and sue the school system claiming their illness is from the food. Another TV report says there is a non-profit group that actually does the meal development and packaging work using some volunteers. It also said the meals were for the family. Not just a student.
