When I heard they give free/reduced lunch recipients at Minneapolis schools an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT LUNCH than all other kids I quickly emailed my child's principle to find out their policy. I thankfully live in Robbinsdale. I have forwarded your blog to my Facebook. All of us should be ashamed that any child in this country goes without meals.

Arg. When I read something like this, not only does my heart break, but I wonder. What heartless SOB's would take away a lunch of a child?
As a kid who didn't always have a lunch (or lunch money), I'll never forget the feelings of embarrassment when I stood in line for a free lunch. I'm so glad I didn't get turned away and I feel awful that it could happen to anyone.

Thank you for your comments, Dew and Mommy Lisa - this issue has been weighing heavy on my heart since I read the article in the Strib. I have working on this post for a while, trying to find the right words to express my feelings. It breaks my heart and makes me so angry! I am still waiting to hear from my school district re: their policy!
