"Subject line is required. Please enter at least 2 characters." (That's what it said. Honest.)

Now, back to our story.
Not much better here. Breakfast is critical because the poorer kids don't get one at home. Sadder: most kids don't eat most of the food. It does get separated at discard, and local farmers buy it cheaply for their livestock.
"Got milk?" Got money?

I'll bet you didn't have a camera/cellphone with you to take a picture.....Times are changing. Kids today can go to a fast food joint....Some of them can even book a flight overseas to fight for ISIS.

Chickasha lunch Student Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of the skimpy lunch and showed it to her parents.

THEN she ate it?...And made it home safely? Safely, except she was pregnant?

When she got home she raided the fridge? Perhaps if she ate more at breakfast BEFORE she went to school.

This doesn't look right. She is going for healthy lunches

This doesn't look very healthy. They are saying that is what the complies with the regulations. Exactly how does that comply with the regulations? What are the regulations?

Found some of the regulations
by Diana Forum moderator / October 22, 2014 10:27 AM PDT
1 cup of fruit
1 cup of vegetables
2 ounces of grain
2 ounces of meat or meat alternative
1 cup of milk

She is also trying to cut down on salt and sugar. I don't see any of this except to get in under the wire as cheap as possible. Sounds like the school needs to look at who is fixing their lunches. Oklahoma is notorious for privatizing government services. When I lived there, the DMV was privatized. It says that the Federal government will help with the costs of the lunches if the schools don't charge for some. Wonder if they asked?

I don't think this lunch meets the requirements. There is too much salt in the crackers and lunch meat. Don't see any milk or fruit (or is what is in the cup fruit?).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
