  1. There’s no question in my mind that people need to have the wherewithal to eat comfortably before they can be expected to have politics or make decisions that are free of the gripe of the hungry gut. While everyone is an individual, and some poor people, even children, may eschew the free lunch because they feel it demeans them, I feel there are a great many more who with just this help up will be able gradually to assume the full dignity they deserve, and will appreciate the fellowship of those who helped them achieve it. It all depends on how it is administered and delivered, from the issuing agency on down to the school lunch worker, who either has a friendly smile for each child or has an angry, resentful attitude or a “poor you” frame of mind. And them’s my thoughts!


  2. As a recipient of free school lunches, I feel fully qualified to say, unabashedly, that those free school lunches give kids one thing: Hot meals. Nutrition to stand up to Language Arts. A full stomach upon which to wrestle with Algebra.
    Yes, I wanted a lunch in a brown paper sack just like the other kids, too. Not because that meant somebody cared for you, but because that peanut-butter sandwich in a brown paper sack meant you weren’t poor. Poor kids eat government meals. So they can do school. Because without that hot meal, I could not have solved the problems of chemistry or slain the dragons of polygons.
    My friend would watch me chew carefully, eschewing his peanut butter sandwich with disdain of the thoughtfully prepared lunch that only the privileged, never-hungry class can muster, noting “you make that food look tasty.”
    Indeed, It was.
