Dear Falmouth Residents, I am asking for your support for an issue that many of you may not be aware of. As it has been reported in the news recently, there are many public schools in this country in which the meal payment policy states that students with any outstanding balances are denied food or offered an insufficient option such as a "cold cheese sandwich". It was recently brought to my attention that our very own children and students of the Falmouth Public School system are subjected to these same procedures which are not only humiliating, but unhealthy. I cannot look the other way when it comes to feeding our children. These children are our future and our responsibilty. As tax paying citizens, it is not only the right choice, but the only choice to petition for a change in this policy. Thank you for supporting a change for our children. Tanya Peters, RN, BSN, CAPA

Please change meal payment policy in Falmouth public schools. Our children deserve a healthy meal regardless of whether or not they forgot their lunch money. As tax payers, parents, and human beings, we refuse to let even one child be served a "cold cheese sandwich" as their only means of sustenance while at school.
