Actually, what sort of society do we have that, at most, a decade ago it was the norm for kids to have meals at home during the school holidays, but freebies when school was open?aw c'mon troops what sort of society do we have that think kids are poor enough during term time for a free meal but rich enough during the hols ? Dont forget the cost price per meal is pence compared to M.P's lunch allowances . If there wen't such a proliferation of food banks I could possibly see that free school dinners were not required . My kids have all grown up and my grandkids dont need free meals , thats their good luck but after hearing stories about child neglect in primary schools for various teachers the poor mites need all the help that they can get . Dont blame the kids for gods sake let children be children feed the needy . out .
It's neglect because the parents are too wrapped up in themselves and their rep on Whatsapp/Instagram/Tiktok to be bothered about the kids they had, they can afford to feed them fast food rubbish on a daily basis but heaven help that they might actually have to sort out one extra meal per day, which could just be a couple of sandwiches especially when their BFF, Chardonnay, has just posted the perf pout on Insta and they have to go one better!
