Point is, poor kids aren't forced to eat the cheese sandwiches, it is the kids who have parents who DON'T PAY for their lunches. Life isn't a free
ride. There is nothing wrong with that sort of lunch. Parents should either pay up or apply for the free/reduced meal program.
The parents get mad because their kid had to eat a cold lunch, but they can't admit they are at fault for not paying for their lunch. I mean really,
do these people go to a restaurant and expect to eat a meal without having money to pay for it? The kids aren't being refused food, they are being
given a healthy alternative. And I'm sure these parents know they owe money to the school to pay for lunches. Lunch is 1.75 (you can't pack a
lunch for that) at my daughter's elementary school, if she goes into a negative balance they send a letter home. I'm sure if you are $20 or more
behind, you are well aware of the fact that you aren't paying for your kids' lunch and that your kid is going to get a cheese sandwich. You don't
pay your utility bills and guess what, they cut you off and you also have ample notice ahead of time.
Problem is society today...give me, give me, give me and when you don't, there is a problem. People need to grow up and be responsible for
themselves and their children. If I were to go through life expecting someone else to take care of us, my kids will too.
