I don't understand this...my sister gets 580 a month in food stamps and her kids get free lunch at school. If she is getting food stamps why can't she use the food stamp money to pack her kids lunch? I know she has more than enough because over the summer she is able to feed them 3 meals a day without problems.... I mean the schools have NO money. Don't you think that someone who gets food stamps should pack there kids lunch and then maybe the schools would have money for things like book and extra programs like music and art???Answer Question

I'm guessing she probably has her kids take the free lunch rather than packing a lunch because it's free and easier because she doesn't have to do anything. Some folks just don't care as long as it's free for them.
Also, I didn't realize that free and reduced school lunches were paid for by the schools themselves. I had assumed that they were paid for by a government program that is funded by taxpayers like The National School Lunch Program.
