It provides foods to be served in school breakfast, school snack programs, and other child nutrition programs. The value States receive in USDA Foods is based on a formula that multiplies the number of lunches claimed during the previous year by a per meal rate, which is adjusted annually for inflation. Every dollar’s worth of USDA Foods used in a school menu frees up money that would otherwise be spent on commercial food purchases. As school districts face ever tightening budgets, USDA Foods have become a valuable resource to keep local food service budgets in the black. The Federal government’s large volume purchasing power is an important factor in maintaining school food service budgets because it may allow the procurement of food at a lower unit cost than if a school were purchasing equivalent commercial foods on its own.
The only reason people wouldn’t agree would be because they want to spend time with their children, but they will still be able to because year round schooling gives short bursts of breaks about two weeks every other month(Towler). Finally, Year-Round Schooling would be a great idea to interpret and merge into our school . so that we can not just learn more but not be stressed out and forget what we learned the previous year. What they don’t know is that the People around kids need them to go to school all the time not just for education but, also so they may go to work and feed their families. This method of teaching is something that I have experienced when I was a child and I enjoyed learning while taking one week break about every
Therefore children should be allowed to buy soda at school if they can anywhere else. Secondly, kids bring pop or sugary drinks to school on their own anyway. ”It was a lunch that would horrify a dietitian: a bag of Tropical Skittles, a Jones soda, two Little Debbie marshmallow treats, a deep-fried pizza stick and a bottle of sweetened iced tea..” (Jessica Blanchard &Casey McNerthney). Most high school kids travel off campus multiple times a week to get food and drinks that are from fast food restaurants with sugary
“Subsequently, he spent his college years volunteering for New York group Two Birds, One Stone, delivering extra dining hall food to homeless shelters,”(Sumitra 1). Robert Lee has always helped people in need. In college, he joined a group that helped feed the homeless in college.

His most proudest achievements in office was creating the first municipally-funded housing in the entire nation. This continued to create homeownership opportunities for families with a moderate income. Still, even though the housing market has improved, there are many people who are hidden under a mountain of mortgages and loans. Bernie Sanders wants to expand the National Affordable Housing Trust fund, and going back to jobs, raise minimum wage to give young adults the ability to pay for their houses. This is an important issue since the homeless population has increased throughout the year.
Sarah Wu, who is a mother and an elementary school teacher decided on January 4, 2010 to eat the school lunch every day. She decided to blog about each day she ate the school lunches. Sarah Wu had experienced her students constantly complaining about the school lunches as well as hearing it from her own children. Sarah decided to conduct an experiment of her own to observe what would happen to her if she were to consume the lunch provided to the students for a certain period of time. Her results lead her to the conclusion that the school lunches should not be fed to the growing children.

“According to the Education Commission of the States, about 100 of the country’s approximately 15,000 school districts, in 17 states, use four-day weeks.” stated by Cindy Long. A four-day school week is a relatively new and innovative idea gaining popularity with students and teacher across the United States. The advantages of attending school only four days per week far outweigh the potential disadvantages. The financial savings to districts that jump on the four-days-per-week can be tremendous. Having a 4 day week would benefit not only the students, but also the teachers.
To be able to have this privilege she was required to bring her own sack lunch from home so she could join the people she wanted to be able to fit in with and also feel important. Due to wanting to feel more important Esperanza chose to make a quite substantial deal about wanting to eat lunch at school while ordinarily she would have to trek back home to eat. For example “Okay, Okay, my mother says after three days of this.. The following morning I get to go to school with my mother’s letter and a rice sandwich.”(Cisneros 44). This displays that Esperanza spent days begging her Mother to allow her to have this privilege and give it a
It was a rainy day. Unlike the previous observation, I did not get the fun ride with my professor. I had to catch the Uber and I could arrive at school by 8. I walked into the classroom and I could meet Ms. B’s class students, Ms. B and two of teachers aids. All students were eating something in class for their breakfast including two of teacher assistants.
