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.

sinister? lol

Quoting ShellLea:

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.

Ok glad you re happy that you don't even have to be the most minimal parent and feed your OWN children, to the point of bragging about it.

Same here. But I always prepare something anyway in case we all don't like what is served at church.

My kids go to church T,W and Sunday. The older ones do special projects on Saturdays with the youth also.

Quoting thefiregoddess:

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

Win for you

Fyi peeps.. this is common.
If a certain percentage of kids in a school district, city or county would qualify, all kids can get free.meals at school regardless of income.

It's a relatively new program.


Quoting CuriousArentYa:

Here, every kid get a free breakfast no matter the income of the parents. 

Quoting Anonymous:

Income guide lines.... Here in Idaho we make 3000 a month and get reduced lunches.
