Petition update

Poor and hungry? Awww! How about a little manual labor to teach you a life lesson?

Feb 11, 2017 — 'Awww, your family is poor and you're hungry. Well, we will let you eat but then you'll have to grab that broom and sweep the floor in order to "pay" for that meal.'

That about sums up the attitude of former Georgia congressional representative Jack Kingston in this video from three years ago.

Since then, Mr. Kingston, a Trump advisor, has given up his congressional seat and been hired to lobby for a Syrian opposition group.

Whether a cold brown bag lunch, the cheese sandwich of shame, or someone expecting a poor child to sweep the floor, I am disturbed by this willingness to expose and shame children who's meal accounts have not been maintained.

How about we let the adults deal with the adult problems and let kids be kids, trust me, they already have enough to worry about at school.

#NoSchoolMealsDenied EVER!
