Take money FROM FUTURE FUNDING of food stamps and put it into school lunch program? Looks like House Democrats made a statement. What do you think? Isn't this whole taking from FUTURE FUNDING one reason why our nation has reached the point of financial crisis?
First lady Michelle Obama’s campaign for healthier school lunches has stalled in Congress after anti-hunger groups and more than 100 Democrats protested the use of food stamp dollars to pay for it.
Passage of the child nutrition bill, which would improve lunches in schools and expand feeding programs for low-income students, has been a priority for Democrats and hunger groups for years.

Our schools offer salads and vegetarian alternatives in their meals. I have to say, when I have been to lunch w/ my DS and DD, most of the kids that have the school lunches only eat a very small amount of what is served to them. So, either they should have smaller portions or make it taste better (I figure it either tastes bad or is too much food).
Oh, and I am glad for the stall as well.
