Let's Eat!

This petition had 341 supporters

The Ankeny School Board is voting on September 18, to change the breakfast and lunch program in our district. The district is going to give all Kindergarten through seventh graders free meals, but will deny 8th-12th graders meals after they fall short two meals. A central office administrator was quoted in the Des Moines Register, "Parents or students should be able to take care of the situation," meaning 8/9 graders should be responsible enough to have conversations with their parents about their lunch account balances. Even if that is true, many students do not eat because their parent will not or cannot pay the lunch bill. These are the working poor and/or food insecure of our community. Please sign the petition to show the board that we want students in our building to be able to eat.
