American Feeding Stations: Free Summer Lunches

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.

…snip…

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.

  1. Five to the nth power, TG. All over our area, too. Everywhere, nationally, I’m sure. In addition, while they want to take away our township governments and our precincts, and put ‘voting centers’ in malls and on university campuses in town, they are sending ‘non-profit’ agencies out to set up shop in rural schools to make it easy for families to sign up for ‘services’.

    • I heard Perry was at RLC today in New Orleans where he was greeted with a loud chant, “Run, rRck, run”

      He might be really thinking about it. Friday, he vetoed an texting while driving law, something a couple of years ago he would have signed to pragmatically appease the suburban indie moms.

    • I agree that people…could…put a stop to this, and many other things locally, VB. The problem as I see it is the famous Lineholder frog-in-the-pot scenario. Locals have seen on a national scale how their reps have stood idly by and watch federal agencies usurp their authority and come in and bully local communities, businesses, et cetera, and also use the carrot-and-stick of federal funding for local and state projects. So even if these things aren’t federal projects or mandates, the people think it is ‘da government’ and you can’t fight ‘national hall’. Just one more consequence of deviating from the constitution nationally, resulting in trickle-down tyranny.
