In our country, where we have more food than we know what to do with, having children go hungry while food is thrown away is an unforgivable sin.
When my youngest was still in high school, I used to get calls all the time saying that her limit was reached and she had to bring more money or else
she would be refused food in the cafeteria. The funny thing was, we weren't poor, but she was stubborn and didn't want to take a lunch.
But for the children who are truly hungry, how are they expected to learn and behave when they're really hungry?
It reminds me of the book "The Grapes of Wrath", which detailed the farmers in California in the 1930s who had bumper crops of things like milk and
oranges, pouring the milk down into a ditch, and burying tons of organges, to keep the price up high, while starving farmworker's children watched it
happen. This is truly psychopathic behavior, in which the drive for the almighty dollar is more important than feeding your fellow human beings who
