Comment: Much of the food at public schools...

(See in situ)


Much of the food at public schools...

...is provided free by the federal government. You know why? The federal government spends billions every year buying up farm products to artificially raise prices to benefit the farmers. Then they have to get rid of the stuff somehow, but they can't sell it on the domestic market (as that would just lower prices back down again). So some of it they physically destroy, some of it they dump on third world countries and call it aid, some of it they give to public schools to feed the inmates.

...children get the scraps from the corporate welfare table.
