Hi, Help! The students at school are not getting much to eat at lunch. I teach 5th grade and the students get 1/2 a chicken patty and a bit of canned corn and a bit of canned fruit. If we have "pizza", it is half a slice. Even if they eat all of it, this is not enough for children who are over 5 feet tall and are very active. Yes, I do allow them to have snack, and yes, they do get a small breakfast before 8am, but that and the mini-lunch still leaves many hungry. Over 40% of our students are on free and reduced lunch. This is what I am told: We get our hot lunches from the public school system. As we have free and reduced lunch, we must follow the same federal guidelines as all public schools. The federal guidelines forbid giving any more food than this tiny amount. I find this hard to believe as this is only half the amount they got 2 years ago. If this is true, than I guess it is true at all the schools throughout the US. Is this true at your school?
