Sipple: Feed kids now; figure out payment later


I would be in favor of all students being able to get a free lunch, no matter their economic level.

I’ve read horror stories of kids being denied lunch or made to do cleanup-type work to get a lunch. I don’t want kids to be put in that situation. I wish there was a way for the more affluent parents to pay, but I don’t know how that distinction can be made.

Meantime, I say feed the kids and iron out the details later.
