We home schooled our children till middle/high school and let them decide. I pay enough taxes to the government and expect them to make sure that my child is well taken care of for the 8 hours a day I pay for them to be.
Food should be the least of their concerns. This should not even be an issue. Who lets a hungry kid starve?

For someone else that asked, a lot of schools do NOT allow 'brown bag" lunches any longer, or arbitrarily decide that the food the parents chose isn't good enough. The schools controlling ght food is just another control method. "Do things our way, and eat what we say you will eat, or starve." seems to be the rule these days. We MUST get the government out of the schools.
Inmates’ relatives and legal advocates in Texas said the elimination of milk in cartons and weekend lunches was an unnecessarily harsh cutback that had a negative effect on prison life. In August, 19 inmates at the Hutchins State Jail near Dallas, one of the 36 prisons that reduced weekend meals, signed a petition and sent it to the Texas affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, calling the food cutbacks a violation of the federal Constitution.
The weekend meal reduction appears to be out of step with the standards adopted by the American Correctional Association. In adult prisons, the association recommends serving three meals per day. Variations are allowed based on weekend and holiday food-service demands as long as the meals meet basic nutritional goals, but the standards do not state that the variations can be done every weekend or as a cost-cutting measure.
Prisoners’ rights advocates said that serving inmates fewer than three meals a day falls into a legal gray zone based on various cases around the country.In Texas, a state law requires inmates to be fed “three times in any 24-hour period,” but the law applies only to county inmates and not to state prisoners.
How can this be prevented in the future, shouldn't the school district be responsible to make
sure that each and every child receives a lunch every day?
Does it fall back on the parents to provide lunch for their kids?

Without reading all the replies, let me tell you of our own experience here in Colorado with the local schools!...
This is a regular problem and I plan on bringing it up to the principal this Monday at the middle school.
When I was in school we were allowed to bring a lunch from elementary on up to high school (and I did every day because I was picky). Do they just not allow kids to bring lunches anymore? (I don't have kids, so I don't know what is going on with public school policies)

You keep using words you don't understand the meaning of. Who said they want to bind authority to a single unit?
