There use to be a restuarant here in town that charged slightly higher for their meals (not drastically higher than most - just a bit) and if you ate everything on the plate (i.e. no waste) you were reimbursed the difference...  Actually worked for a long time - but the original owner passed away and the new owners stopped the practice...

That's a shame it stopped, was a good thing.

Here's an easy answer for this:

Stop serving food in schools!
Schools exist to educate children, not feed them.
It shouldn't be the schools business if a student can't afford food.

They're supposed to go from 8am-3pm without eating?

  • it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

Its a well known fact an unfed child cant learn or concentrate as well. So yes I see stopping feeding them as a future part of the agenda to dumb down our kids.

I know there are coffee shops around the US where someone can buy a coffee and then pay for another (or however many they want) to put on reserve. These paid-for reserve coffees are for homeless people that can't afford to buy their own. They just go in and ask the cashier if there are any coffees on reserve and they're given one.


That's pretty cool.
I wonder how they police it.

I could never work in a food pantry.  My wife volunteered at one for awhile at a local church.   She was just too bothered by the freeloaders.   There are people who go from place to place all the time and just take the good stuff.   People will drive up in nice cars, have cell phones and be dressed fairly nice.   That food pantry has since gone to a program that requires those in need to register with a department in town.  They must do a background check of some kind.

I didn't say that.
Students should be free to bring food with them and to have a designated time to eat it.

For some kids, school lunch might be the best thing they get to eat all day.

Shame on the school for not feeding the kiddies :devil:  In Primary schools from low income areas in the NW they even provide breakfast for the infants.

Why is that an educating facility's concern?

Because that's where the kids are at lunch time.

My workplace has a cafeteria. Why is it their concern whether or not WE have a convenient place to go eat?

In the UK the schools are 'in loco parentis', Latin for "in the place of a parent" they have a  legal responsibility to take care of the children.

Yeah i volunteered some of my time a few years back and saw the same **** you just mentioned,freeloaders loading up their nice shiny cars with everything they could get,almost got into a fistfight with one after telling him off  haha.

As for the school lunches i used to just not eat when i was at school,what they call healthy,balanced nutrition i called junk food.I knew a few though that school lunch was about the best meals they got throughout the week,so it does serve a purpose.

And the school doesn't profit from the money parents have to fork over for food?
