No money for teachers, but in Palm Beach County, kids eat free all summer long!


Palm Beach County parents can visit nearly 70 neighborhood schools this summer to feed their children for free.

The school district is again offering its Summer Food Service Program, which provides breakfast and lunch to anyone age 18 or younger who shows up during the right times.

The program, which runs through Aug. 5, is paid by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and arranged through the Florida Department of Education.  The goal is to make sure children from low income families continue to receive nutritious meals when schools are closed for summer vacation.

The food sites are provided in communities where at least 50 percent of the children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals during the school year, but all children are eligible for the free meals.

    Think they register the 18 year olds to vote while they’re at it?

    It’s funded from taxpayers like you and I, whether it comes from federal, state, or local funding. Those three governmental entities do nothing to generate revenue — all of their funding is appropriated from income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, gasoline taxes, and countless other fees. If they can find money to feed kids when school isn’t even in session, they can find money to pay teachers salaries.
