Schools ripping off kids’ lunch funds

Talk about stealing candy from a baby. In Santa Ana, the government school district has been shifting money from kids’ food programs:

“In one instance, the Santa Ana Unified School District billed a $301,000 kitchen roof repair to its student meal program, even after being informed by state officials twice – in writing and in person – that student meal funds could not legally be used to fix the central kitchen’s roof.

“Santa Ana Unified also ordered its central kitchen to routinely provide free meals and snacks to high-level district officials, the report noted, including at twice-monthly school board meetings.”

Of course, given the horrible food served in these schools, the kids were better off relying on food from home, or starving. Two years ago I attended a graduation ceremony of some friends’ child at a school in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, which includes rich Newport Beach. They served the kids an inedible, pasty glop.

This is part of Co-President Michelle Obama’s drive to get anything tasty out of school food programs. The result is low-protein slop of the sort cults use to brainwash their recruits because it keeps the mind dull and submissive.

And if school officials are ripping off this “food” and eating it themselves, that helps explain the dull-witted policies coming from them.

Besides, why do taxpayer have to pay for kids’ food, anyway? Why can’t parents pay for it? And for poor kids, don’t their parents already get EBT cards for food stamps?

    You got that right. Why ARE the schools feeding kids? That is the parents responsibility. Most just throw it away. That would save a lot of money.

    What is absoltulely disgusting is that so many kids are or free assisted lunches, and they look like fat pigs along with with the waddlings sows that spawned them.

    The free food is to socialize the immigrants into the liberal democrat commune John. Conservatives will not be recieving any votes from the children of the California public school system, they have been raised just as Pavlov’s dogs.

    As ti the issue of spending, one needs to look no futher than their own city water bill to see that any justification can can and will be used to spend outside of restrants. In the majority of cities water costs are being tied to city departments that have nothing to do with water. 🙂
