It depends on the school district and type of school (private vs. public, charter, etc.) and age group but generally free lunches are provided to students of low-income families and in some cases breakfast as well.Do schools feed the kids over there? Not here in Oz, parents have to supply the food no matter what, and here its only lunchtime.

Agreed, same here. Lunch is provided and those families that can afford pay full price, those that are struggling pay a reduced amount and those that cannot pay at all geet "free" lunch. Taxes subsidize those not paying full price. Just in the last 10 years have they added breakfast to the mix. My current school district has a higher number of lower income families.It depends on the school district and type of school (private vs. public, charter, etc.) and age group but generally free lunches are provided to students of low-income families and in some cases breakfast as well.
It is a fine line between staying informed about it and getting consumed by it (literally and figuratively).
well, it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. I suggest a break from all media and social forums.....there is also an "ignore thread" button at the top of the thread. Feel free to use it. I understand it's overwhelming.
For those of us at risk... well, we are naturally going to be interested in what the latest is, and given that it changes daily....
I went for a morning run yesterday by the nearby lake, and I avoided every other runner like they had the plague...literally! Some people just don't get the gravity of the situation by not practicing proper physical distancing.I have always had a practice when I go to a medical facility of looking for the seat farthest from where anyone else is sitting. This week I took my wife to her first follow-up after her hip surgery. People kept sitting near me, and I kept getting up and moving . . . especially when the older woman who was hacking and snorting sat down two seats away. I also used lots of the hand sanitizer the staff had posted at a table in the middle of the room.
Our family usually has a tradition of Friday Pho or what we've named Phoriday! We're also worried about our local restaurants, some aren't even making enough money to justify their pick-up orders.Trying to support some of our local restaurants since they are mandated to be closed for indoor dining for two weeks.
So I called an order to a local Vietnamese place and they took the order and payment via phone.
Then I drove there and called them from the car. They brought the food out a left it on a chair outside.
Then I grabbed it and gave them a big thanks through thee window!
They were so grateful that I came. There was one other person waiting around in there car for an order. Just hoping they can last it out. I fear the two week mandate will be extended.
