I was talking to a woman at my son's school while we were waiting for the teacher (the teacher was doing individual confreres with each parent about what classes their child would be taking next year). Anyway we got to talking and she said that her 3 kids were all on free lunch and breakfast so it was nice that she doesn't have to fix those for them. Not judging, I said, well I think it is great they have those programs for families who need it. She said 'well it's more about the convenience, I get almost $600 a month in food stamps". Now I ask you, if she gets $600 a month for food, why does she need the government to also give her kids free lunch and breakfast???? I mean she is only feeding her kids 11 meals out of 21 a week! I am all for people getting help when they need it but taking everything you can get when you don't even begin to need it is CRAZY!!!!Answer Question

Its income based... lunch program and foodstamps, if she doesn't have the income, she qualifies easily for both.
