Chicago School Bans Lunches Brought From Home

Post by Jernice on Sat Jun 25, 2011 4:52 pm

To encourage healthful eating, Chicago school doesn't allow kids to bring lunches or certain snacks from home — and some parents, and many students, aren't fans of the policy.

At Little Village Academy on Chicago's West Side, students are not allowed to pack lunches from home. Unless they have a medical excuse, they must eat the food served in the cafeteria.

Principal Elsa Carmona said her intention is to protect students from their own unhealthful food choices.

Any school that bans homemade lunches also puts more money in the pockets of the district's food provider, Chartwells-Thompson. The federal government pays the district for each free or reduced-price lunch taken, and the caterer receives a set fee from the district per lunch.

This has got to be a joke. The schools have been feeding children "junk" for years. I really believe that the principal is trying to put more money in the governments pockets.

This is why they are doing this (Money). Not because they care so much about what the children are eating.
