Re: “Hungry kids? TNT claim is ridiculous” (letter, 9-23).
The letter writer needs to get out of her comfort zone and perhaps spend some time volunteering in public schools. (No, I’m not a teacher or employed by the school district. I have volunteered in schools and have no children.)
Sure, people can afford cereal, bread, milk and peanut butter, but what if the parents spend the money somewhere else because they don’t care? If the parents are inept mouth-breathers who shouldn’t have kids in the first place, which some are, why should the kids suffer by not being fed?
Most of the kids who receive these reduced-price and free meals get them because they need it.
