    The meals are already too expensive for what the kids get. Whoever they have the contract withfrom this past year, the kids say the food is awful. So now we are going to have to pay for more bad food? And no I am not one who gets free meals, in fact I have to budget about a hundred dollars a month if my child eats breakfast and lunch at school, it’s pricey!

      We used to just go over to Hy-Vee and eat off the Deli.

      $100 a month? 20 days, two meals? $2.50 a meal? Send them to HyVee, see what that cost. Plus, kids are going to. Say terrible things about it, they are going to complain for many reasons. Maybe things are pricey, but you won’t get more for the money, with the exception of sending lunch from home. But then that has to be made from scratch otherwise it will be more expensive.

    Raising the price of meals … for the few who can afford them. Most kids are on FREE or REDUCED PRICE meals here in Mason. The costs will get passed right on down from landlords to their broke as a joke tenants on that tax levy. That’s just another example.
