Schools don't feed children, that's what parents are for! Schools make lousy parents and the results will be ever more anti-social behavior from children and their children!

You know what, there truly is no such thing as a 'free' lunch. Somebody is paying for it, & that is the taxpayers.

I love conservative thinking, "the life of a child is sacred from conseption to birth."

@ Intervention: Conservatives think two PARENTS should raise their kids, not the government. That's the difference! Better for the children, better for our nation, better for the government! And by the way, its conception, not "conseption" and yes life to conservatives is sacred. That's why we oppose abortion on demand! You should as well.

while on the surface this make look like a good thing for the kids, but how much parental reponsibility is being handed over to the state? In the overall grand scheme of things, this move is detrimental to society. Beside parents abdicating responsibility, the children learn dependence on the state.

PARENTS are responsible for feeding and clothing their children, not the state.

Thanks for making my point. Life is only sacred to conservatives and not about the parent bitty to manage that life until the child is born then it's no longer sacred and the parents problem.

This isn't right. Why isn't dinner being provided? Don't kids eat dinner? Besides, a lot of parents are not around at dinner time so who is to fix it? I think barry and the nanny state ought to either give everyone, parents too, dinner vouchers or have meals catered into evryone's home or apartment. That would be fair.
