More than 520,000 students out of 600,000+ students in the Los Angeles school district qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the school year. Over 80% qualify for free or reduced price meals, breakfast AND lunch, while attending school.
In my day, kids brought their lunch to school, every day, usually a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or two, in a brown paper bag. We ate breakfast at home, BEFORE we went to school.
Now they can get two free meals just by going to school? I guess there IS such a thing as a free lunch! (and we taxpayers have to pay for it)
