This is SO embarrassing to a child! I don't get it, if you qualify for reduced lunch then you also qualify for food stamps! Get off your ass and pack you kids a damn lunchbox! I feel so sorry for these children who have to deal with that embarrassment!


EDIT.....WOW you ladies really got your panties in a bunch for this one! The kids at my children's school that get reduced lunch HAVE to go in a seperate line! They do NOT get the same meals that the other kids can choose from (there are always 3-5 choices for the kids but only 1 for the reduced lunch students)

I think it's the other kids parents that make it worse.

Kids wouldn't even understand what was going on if they didn't hear it from an adult first.

We have a family of 6 and in my district if we make less than $1000 a week, we qualify for reduced lunches, we did one year before DF's promotion. We did not qualify for food stamps, though.

Kids here use a card or a number to pay for their lunch. No one knows what the other is paying.

I was on reduced lunch and I didn't know until 9th grade so I doubt any other kids knew I was getting it. In all my years of public school I never once heard anyone even converse about lunch prices and such.

What the actual fuck? They have the same punch card in the lunch line as everyone else, no one would even KNOW?! God, what a piece of work you are!
