I do not feed my kids at all on Wednesdays ** EDIT

Posted by   + Show Post

Nope, not one meal. They eat free breakfast and lunch at school and then they all go to youth group on Wednesday nights and are fed dinner and a snack. Ahhhhh love my Wednesdays lol


So I just looked up the guidelines for free meals in my area and for a family of 7 we can make up to $45,409 and still be eligible and $64,621. In this area those amounts are what is considered wealthy. Now I know why 98% of our schools are on free/reduced meals. I have heard that next yr when they introduce Ipads instead of text books they are also making it free meals school wide, so everyone, no matter the income will be eligible.

My kids love it, my older kids help prepare it also.

A lot of churches in my area have signs up that before services on Wednesday and Sunday, they serve dinner.

 That's what Wednesdays are like for us, too. My oldest goes to church in the evening, my SO goes to poker night. So it's just me and the little one. And when she gets older, she'll probably want to go to church with her sister so I'll have the house all to myself!

Yeah she's trying to make sure you say all the right things before she starts to dig in

Yep would never let the church feed my kiddo.
But mostly because I would never step foot in a church.

Me either. My sinister feeds them breakfast and the school feed them lunch. They have dinner at church. The only meal I don't pay for is dinner, though.
