My wife works for nutrition services for the Fairbanks North Star School District

This started today

while schools are closed they are preparing breakfast and lunch take home meals that can be picked up at the elementary schools and I think the 2 high schools.
The web link gives times and locations.
Its for school children on free and reduced cost program but (per my wife) they are basically handing out to all 18 and under who show up and ask. If just a parent shows they will have to sign for their kids on a roster for the meals. You can pick up breakfast and lunch in one stop to take home.

16 to 18 year olds should be going out and getting a job and buying their own food.

Not exactly a good time to be looking for a job in Alaska, especially in some of the locations being discussed here.

Then their parents should be looking for work or ways to support their own children - not me. We already pay about $65,000 each per years for their "school" ... they need to pay a fair share.

What is it with schools being responsible for feeding people's children?

If you can't feed 'em, don't breed 'em.

The funding for those meals were already paid out. There is a reason why the meal programs went into effect and why they are funded.

As a public school teacher, I assure you, there are more kids than you realize that eat twice a day. Those two meals are provided at school. Sad. But it’s reality.

I don't want a kid to grow up hungry, or worse. But parents need to pay a price for bringing kids into the world that they have no way of feeding themselves. If they expect taxpayers to provide funding, then after some period of time, they need to get "snipped", to avoid bringing a 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) kid into play they cannot afford. We could call the program "Wheat for Nuts" or something. No cost. Please step up onto the table, don't forget to remind the nurse to give you an ice pack on the way out.
