I think it is still on point, but grant you that it could steer into a topic all in it's own. The reason I say it is still on point is we have kids and parents in my community who complain about what their kids are being, or not being fed, but will not bother to pack even a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and maybe some kind of treat for their kids.
I know a lot of these kids would not get anything nutritious from home if anything at all. Therefore I would never suggest stopping the lunch and breakfast programs in their entirety. However, as a community we are also enabling the parents in not taking responsibility for their children. Which also opens the door for the government mandating what the schools feed them.
