Your child can get a free summer lunch. Yeah, parents, forget about whipping up that grilled cheese sandwich. Your local school district, with help from the Department of Agriculture is taking that job over for you. No questions asked and no papers needed. If you are 18 or under, just show up. Eat free.

Maybe the fridge is empty, or Mom forgot to leave money for a convenience-store sandwich, or maybe the kids are just lonely.
Whatever the reason, thousands of children head out each day for a free lunch at a nearby school, recreation center or church.
Clearly, we are seeing a trend of more children needing this assistance,” said Bryan Black, a Texas agriculture department spokesman.
Yet, at least in Dallas County, the number of lunch sites has dropped. …snip… Still, it’s early summer and Black said he hopes that number will grow.
He_hopes_that_number_will_grow. Get the story straight you goverment morons. One day all the school kids are obese. The next day you are advertising free lunches because the kids are going hungry.
Pity, but this is your schools and government at work today, acting as a one stop shop for social services. They are hard at work creating that culture of dependence on government. Grab the teat folks, and zone out. The government has everything covered. Vote for more of the same.
