Thankfully I havent been in school for a long time, but is it common for schools to feed/offer kids breakfast and lunch?
When I was growing up in the 1970's & 1980's I ate breakfast at home, and brought a bag lunch to school. The cafeteria food was pretty bad back then, and a homemade lunch was a better, and cheaper option for my working class folks.
With cutbacks everywhere, and tax dollars already stretched thin I am not sure how much support any initiative will get to make any changes. I know my property taxes are pretty darn high even out in the country where I live(over $6,400/year), with most of it going to the schools(I am all for this, education is invaluable). I would not support a tax increase to improve the menu offerings.
With a daughter nearing school age of course I am concerned with her diet, but I think she will do as her dad did. Eat breakfast @ home, and bring a lunch with her. It starts at home imho.
Good cause, and a good fight, just not sure how it can be implemented.

"And I heard as it were, the noise of thunder
One of the four beasts saying 'come and see.'
And I saw, and behold a white horse
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
And looked and behold a pale horse
And his name that sat on him was death, and all hell followed with him."
