"Free" meals during school closures

"Free" meals during school closures
March 24, 2020
I'm sure it's the same all over the country, but all of this handwringing over continuing the free feeding programs for brats during the school closures is making me ILL. Schools are delivering the meals door to door as well as having meal pick-up available. Yes, many people are losing jobs right now, but how many of these loser parents would bother to feed their OWN FUCKING KIDS anyway? Our school district actually has NO RESTRICTIONS on who can get free food...you don't even have to be a student in the district. Of course they've been running out of food and have been demanding more "for the chylllldrunnn." Let's just continue to reward irresponsibility instead of maybe just trying to teach people to be more self-sufficient and plan for emergencies on their own? I hate what this country has become, a bunch of damn takers.

Crab cake, when we were growing up people fed their own kids. Again, when this stop? I mean, you breed em you feed em.

I'm probably not old enough yet to have a "back in my day" rant, but yeah, when I was a brat a couple decades ago, I'm pretty sure it would warrant a visit from Social Services if a parent couldn't afford to feed their kids at least twice a day. Why the fuck is it the school's responsibility to feed all these kids, and why the fuck can't the parents feed them?

This should warrant close inspection of the parents' spending habits to see where exactly their money is going, especially if they're on some kind of government assistance. If it's discovered that Moo is blowing money on manicures and phones, or doing that thing where they buy someone else's groceries with their food stamps in exchange for money with which to buy stupid shit, then they get to attend mandatory parenting and budgeting classes. Failure to comply means they get fined, maybe jailed for a brief time, and lose their kids, which means they also lose a good chunk of their benefits too.

But of course this won't happen because everyone is willing to bend over backwards for the poor children, not seeming to understand that breeders will depend on this generosity and then bitch when this privilege (not right) is taken away. Consider all the moaning that went on when schools attempted to limit poor kids to a peanut butter sandwich for lunch due to unpaid cafeteria debts, because apparently the poor darlings just can't function without a hot meal! If schools said no more fucking free food for dumbasses, there would be so much mooing and lowing that it would probably register on the Richter scale.

Didn't it seem like every school district in the country was dithering on shutting down schools because the kids would starve. I mean here this is likely the biggest public health hazard of our lives and many doctors have suggested kids are likely to be infected and transmit the virus, but school cannot be shut down because it's where kids are fed. Even if that's true, why are there now schools giving out food to anyone under 18? Nobody should profit here. Worse case scenario is the school fed a finite number of kids and continues to feed the same kids. If the school fed 500 students breakfast and lunch, keep doing it for those 500 kids. The school should not become a free cafeteria for kids they weren't feeding before.

The problem was for those kids born before 2008, their parents were never able to get back on their feet after the crash because 1) jobs that they could get were of low paying low quality 2) Inflation only applied to expenses, income did not go up. Not every parent was able to get an abortion when needed when the GOP has literally rendered abortion all but illegal, and even birth control was blocked by right-wing nut jobs working the pharmacy.

Schools in our area closed before nonessential businesses, so the free food was being doled out before layoffs began.
If the food situation for these families is as dire as reported, why don't we hear/read about kids dying of starvation every August? Are they fed year-round?

It is not that they are fed year-round, it is that we don't know how long this crisis will last. A child can last a month without appropriate nutrition such as living on potatoes, however, a year can start to cause serious problems. Yes, I can see this situation lasting a year, especially how the GOP has fucked up response and that there are no tests for those in need.

I can't speak for other states/districts, but in my area, schools do continue feeding students breakfast and lunch through the summer for free and will even send them home with backpacks stuffed full of food on weekends when school is in session.

whatever we think of the welfare bints, the welfare in the trailer park my ex and I ran, they were able to feed their little bastards with what they got from gubmint. didn't have to rely on the skewls to do that.

CERTIFIED HOSEHEAD!!!

people (especially women) do not give ONE DAMN about what they inflict on children
and I defy anyone to prove me wrong:

The selfish wants of adults outweigh the needs of the child.

If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet I'll put shoes on my pets.

Mankind and its needs (wants) are like unto a black hole. It devours all available resources and it never is full: it merely grows larger and demands more.

Definition of 'wealthy': Anyone who makes more/has more than you do.

Someone pointed out that I'm a realist. And all along I thought I was just a pessimist crossed with a cynic.

Entitlement, thy name is mooooooooooooooo

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove
they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are
citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.""

I am confused enough already. I do not need outside help.
