WHY DO WE MAKE KIDS "PAY" FOR LUNCH AT SCHOOL?

THEY ARE REQUIRED TO BE THERE AND IT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE.

The very concept of "lunch debt" is a maddening dystopian hellscape and IDK what to do other than yell into the void about it

Here's what a school lunch program should look like

1. Give the kids lunch
2. That's it!
3. Literally why would you prevent a child from eating because they don't have money

It's such a fucking farce in the first place, not like that third-grader is working overnights at FedEx to afford lunch - you are charging their *parents*.

And we already have a sophisticated system of having adults pay to educate our children. We call it "taxes"

If I had to schedule a 12:00 meeting with my coworkers (all highly-paid professionals), I'd make sure it's catered because it's rude to expect people to focus when they're hungry.

Baffling to me that we don't extend the same courtesy to children
