school lunches, now and back when i went in the 60's & 70's

i remember when school lunchs were homemade. nothing was frozen. how you could by peanut butter or egg salad sandwiches everyday for 15 cents. yes im in my 50's but, this is not that long ago. whatever happened with the money for our kids that use to be set aside by our school boards for fresh foods. homemade meatloaf, vegetable soup, fish and fries, the list could go on. this makes me sad that most of the kids dont even eat the food perpared for them, they go hungrey. i know you cant sell a sandwich for 15 cents now, thats not the point, teaching our kids to eat healthy and to make smart choices is. have u ever volunteered at the lunch room, i have, most of the food gets dumped in the garbage can. its sickening.
