Sue Erickson When did school go from being an educational resource for children to being a primary resource for meals ..? If that is true and it has obviously been shown to be with all of the local and city schools concern for a meal programs then this country has a bigger problem than thought...
Artist Shawn Rivett Death : Shawn Rivett Obituary, Wyoming break my heart. To say because some children depend on school for subsistence they have bad parents is hateful. Yes some parents are not doing right, but some have fallen on hard times (job loss, sickness, death) don’t assume. School is important for children and parents need to work with their kids so they don’t lose what they have learned especially your little ones. If you can try and help or another instead of ripping each other apart.
Robyn Scarlett Maybe instead of talking about children not eating because of school closings we should start talking about why 30 million children are on free and reduced lunch in the first place. Actor Stuart Whitman Death : Stuart Whitman Obituary, Dies at age 92 loves coming together now to help feed children but where are they when it comes to things that will actually help long term like raising the minimum wage and taxing the wealthiest?
Joe Valayil Just home school the children and go online. There's plenty of programs to teach children to adults as well as tests.
Erma P. Carter The schools could be turned into distribution centers and arrange some way for the families who can to pick up their food and the rest delivered.

Rhett Arthur My job is planning on today being our last day for a couple of weeks and I can understand that because we do have a lot of Disabled people where I work and AS YOU GUYS SAID Disabled are some at the most at risk
Missy Leumer I’ve been a teacher for 15 years, I know that my younger son who is in 2nd grade, will be fine with what I do with him. My concern is my older son who is nonverbal and goes to multiple therapies every week. I will work with him as much as possible but I am not a speech therapist, occupational therapist, or physical therapist. We have plenty of food, a beautiful house, etc but I can’t replicate his therapies!
Tonja Matthews Only in America are we hearing about children going hungry because parents don't make a living wage to afford meals at home.
