Waste of Government Money

I'm sure the school district isn't spending its own money on this, but it's still taxpayer money:

FREE Lunch for All Kids
All children 18 years and younger are welcome.
NO enrollment, NO paperwork, NO income qualifications
Just come to San Juan Central and enjoy a FREE and nutritious meal.
 
San Juan Central
3700 Garfield Avenue

The web site for the program is here:

I can't figure out which government bucket of money pays for this.

Darren, you do realize that the school lunch program was created as a "National Security" program, right? http://www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/lunch/AboutLunch/ProgramHistory_5.htm Poor nutrition made for poor soldiers, and too many 4-Fs

Centered like that, the text looks like it is in the shape of a mushroom. I wonder if that is intentional?

This is similar in tone to ads by South Texas Dental. They tout "free" braces and make a big deal about accepting Chips insurance. Of course many of the people they market to are here illegally. Isn't it nice that their kids can get free dental care and braces while middle class kids like mine can't get them because we couldn't afford it.

Over processed, GMO and pink-slime laden "nutritious" food. I think the lunch program was put in place to provide an outlet for the government subsidized corn and soy farmers.

All the kids can wash down their diabetes meds with a nice cup of government corn syrup.

Yuck.
