I gave my kids $2.15 for lunch and an extra $1.00 for bottled water because the milk is always warm. The free lunch kids always have extra money for cookies and chips, but with 3 kids $3.15 each was my limit. So we stopped subsidizing the free lunch program. Only 8% of students pay for their own lunch, as a result the lunches for are scanty and tasteless. Since I have to pay for my kids to eat lunch I might as well buy them something they can actually eat. Now MY kids have bags of individually wrapped chips etc...and a chicken sandwich that's not still frozen in the middle.
