Michelle Obama's Lunch Program: HC! Harlan Ind Joins

Postby GFunkMoneyDog » Fri Aug 01, 2014 7:19 am

After all the complaints at HCHS and across the nation It surprises me that Harlan Ind would make the decision to join Michelle Obama's Lunch Program.

“Lots of school districts get publicity about doing it, because it’s a great service to the families,” said Morton. “You don’t hear so much about the number of school districts who try it and have to back off because it ends up costing more money to the general fund in the long run. I asked Mrs. Clem to investigate this and see if there was any way it could be done in our environment.”


Their are tons of school districts across the nation that are opting out of the program after one/two years because of complaints, wasted food and overall costs. Nothing is free.

You can tell by looking at her big fat ass she knows how to eat, but admittedly she doesn't know anything about cooking or what kids will and won't eat. They will find out how expensive the program is when they are forced to purchase new equipment every few years.

I trust there are many intelligent folk up there that can feed kids something wholesome and tasty without sacrificing the lunch program for a few dollars.

David Johnson would never have allowed this plate to be put on the councils table.

Taste is acquired. Most kids naturally love sweets. The past couple of generations have been brought up on convenience foods, like hot dogs and frozen pizza and a hundred other different products full of salt and preservatives. They prefer these because they have acquired a taste for them. Healthful, wholesome diets take lots of planning and preparation. The school lunch programs will only be as good as their cooks.

The kids are screwed. The school needs to make a chart of the number of students who brought their lunch over the past two years, to compare to the next two years.

From re-reading the article the only school to participate will be the Sunshine Preschool. It will be the little ones who will go hungry.

I would hate to see what the 2014 food pyramid looks like. I recall eggs, meat, bread, cereal, and milk being on it. I suppose now the bread would be whole wheat, and the milk skim.

Ms. Clem was my 6th-grade teacher and I loved her. I sat in the front row that year and learned a great deal. Our classroom had several rowdy students and her disposition was too sweet to control the hoodlums in the classroom. I'm glad that she found a non-teaching niche in the school district. It sounds like she is serving the district well. She is both smart and kind. She's a real gem. :)

A good cook can take any vegetable, fruit, meat or dairy product in combination with pantry staples and spices, and make it look and taste great.
