  1. Just a question, why on earth are we feeding kids ( for free) up to 18 years old??? Free food? Are you kidding me? Let’s go ahead and give them free clothes and free TV’s to take home.
    Free is one of the worst things you can do for a community, free has no value and people receiving free have no since of what it takes to earn said freebies.
    What a terrible idea…

  2. I’m a former elementary teacher in the Highland Lakes area and have witnessed how hunger affects children. When 6 year olds hide food in their desk or backpack to take home for later in case thete is mo food at home.. its called food insecurity. Thank goodness for programs like this! And shame on those who commented negatively to this post.

    1. Isn’t this why we have food banks?
      We have food banks all over the highland lakes. Why isn’t that sufficient?
