    I grew up in Attala County back in the 50’s & 60’s, where I attended school. Unfortunately, my parents couldn’t always afford to pay for school lunches, so many times my siblings and I were given tickets for a free lunch. The problem was that the tickets for free lunches were a different color from those that were issued to the students who could afford to pay for them. It was embarrassing enough that my parents couldn’t afford our school lunches, but for everyone to know at a glance that we were poor added a whole new level of humiliation. I commend you for establishing a school meal program that offers food to children who come from families who live in a constant state of food scarcity. A child never gets over being raised in a home where there is never enough food. Please make sure your program is fair & that the meal tickets are all the same color. Thanks!
