Human survival is based on everyone’s four basic needs; air, water, food, and shelter. Unfortunately, the need for food has been overlooked and what most people are not aware of is that there are millions of children and adults that do not receive the food that they need every day. The non-profit organization “Feeding America” has helped eliminate hunger in the United States since 1979. First being called “America’s Second Hand Harvest”, they soon became known as “The Nation’s Food Bank” before finally adopting their current name, “Feeding America”, in 2008. Feeding America helps prevent the nationwide problem of hunger with the assistance of people donating and companies who give grants and to feed more than forty-six million hungry citizens
Should School Lunches Change For a long time now people have been arguing over whether or not to change up the restrictions to the lunches served in schools across America. Many different arguments have come up in recent years. School officials should not change up the school lunches because some people need more food than others, they should not be able to tell them what they can and can't eat, and finally because it will take lots of time and money to make the switch. The first reason schools should not put a limit on school lunches because some students need more food than others. This is shown by athletes because their bodies need more food because they need them nutrients to stay healthy.
Their are students that don't eat anything until they get to school. And they do not want to eat vegetables and fruits and that is it. then you will have students that will not even buy a lunch at all because there is nothing that they like, because it is all healthy food. Kids already complain about how they took all of the good food out of our schools, and you want to make it all healthy? A lunch can only be so healthy before you do not get all of the ingredients your body needs to survive.
“Of all the humiliations attached to being poor in a prosperous nation, not being able to feed your kids is at the top of the list.” Many parents are ashamed of getting assistance from the government because it is seen almost as a disgrace. Anna also suggests that many do not sign up for government assistance because, “The average length of a food stamp application is twelve often impenetrable pages; a permit to sell weapons is just two.” Such a long process just to get food for your family may seem like a very daunting task that many parents may not have time for. In Washington D.C, they have “done better than any other city in the country feeding hungry kids, sending fire trucks into housing projects to distribute leaflets about lunch locations, running a referral hotline, and radio announcements.” Anna’s evidence shows that in D.C, they are making an effort to feed the children and put the issue into the public eye. While many cities do not make such an effort such as Washington D.C does, many do have food banks that families can go to in times of need. While food banks can be helpful, they also cannot always accommodate for a large amount of families in need.
It is because they don’t have more option than go and eat fast-food after they get out school or college, due the lack of food in their house. In other words, their parents can’t cook for them while they are studying. However, David Zinczenko is trying to involve his audience by the pattern of cause and effect in his essay. First, the author started talking about his early life. He says that he didn’t have more option than go and
The biggest thing you could do to make kids healthier is provide more time for activities. Kids only have an hour and a half for P.E. A lot of the kids at school do not even take physical education at all. Which is not good at all, and we barely have outside of school to get our sports or exercise in because every student at school is busy with homework. In conclusion, the school lunches should not be changed because a lot of kids would not eat the new lunches, kids not buying the new lunches means the school would loose money for our supplies, and if you want us to be healithier the easiest thing to do is make more time for
Boo frequently highlights this issue in her book providing numerous examples. Firstly, free municipal education hardly ever is efficient. According to the author, almost 60% of the public school teachers do not have even an undergraduate degree (Boo 85). Mirchi and other similar schoolchildren are not likely to acquire necessary education that could have potentially helped them and their families to escape poverty. Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85).
Poverty and illiteracy go hand in hand in a lot of cases. Many students have to get full-time jobs and dropout of school, in order help their parents with finances and stay afloat. An astounding average of thirty-two million of our nation’s citizens are at low or complete illiteracy. How can a nation be in a “unison” if half of the country can’t read or write, entailing being unable to understand the complexity of the government to a fair extent. Therefore thirty-two million Americans are potentially not represented in the government.
Schools are underfunded, and teachers are underpaid. These are the people that are teaching kids the skills and the values that parents don't have a lot of time to do. Society put a price on a good education. That why mass murder has become such a huge issue or why so many people leave school or why most people cannot afford college. Instead of investing 25 billion dollars to build a wall to keep people out the US should be investing that money into education so that kids can grow the economy and so America can actually become a country where the American dream can be achieved.
One of the things to blame is something called “shopping fever”, shopping fever is when someone shops too much instead of spending time doing other important things. America 's own schools are getting a treatment of ads in certain places around the school. One of those places is channel one news, a channel a lot of schools are required to watch. Companies will overpay just to get one ad on the news, almost 200,000 dollars for one ad on the news. Companies are also sending in products for schools to model projects around.
