Cali Schools Lose It Over Lunch Money

Cali Schools Could Go Bankrupt Over Lunch

We all want the best for our children, especially when it comes to school. Tasty and nutritious meals are an integral part of a healthy school experience. To that end, some children take their lunch to school while others pay for cafeteria food.

Sometimes parents or guardians can’t fully pay for their child’s meal ticket. To counter this from happening in the future in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom just passed a bill that gives students a state-funded meal of their choice, even if the parent has unpaid meal fees. Additionally, the free meal cannot be a cheaper alternative than what is being served to paying students.

Gavin justified this legislation because of a third-grade student who paid for his classmates’ lunch bills. The governor cited this as an important issue, which it certainly is. The fact of the matter is, there’s no incentive for payment. Why would any parent pay for meals if they know their child will get one for free, no matter what?

Do they have a plan to collect from parents?

Do they have a plan to pay for the meals?

Let’s face it, someone has to foot the bill for the food. While we don’t want any child shamed, or to go hungry, we have to ask, is this just a political move by the Left-leaning state?
