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

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
