Each school day, 300,000 high-spirited children and voracious teenagers — virtually a city the size of Pittsburgh — converge on the public schools to eat.
Of these, about 156,000 qualify for free meals.
It is very important to make sure that children are fed. However, it is sad that in America over half of the children going to public school qualify for free meals.
We have people closing their businesses, people losing their jobs, people losing their homes, people not able to provide lunch for their children in school. What happened to America the land of opportunity?
The government has spent and taxed America into the land of poverty.
