It's simply too expensive to provide lean ground beef to the school lunch program when over half of the children eating it aren't paying for it.

For the 2010-2011 school year, North Carolina had 53.9% of it's pre-K, primary, and secondary students on free or reduced lunches. That varies between Camden County at 31.2%, and Northampton County at 94.1%. Locally, New Hanover had 45.5% (over 50% as of February), Pender at 59.6%, and Brunswick at 61.8%.
