    by a certain amount get a cheese sandwich, so at least no one goes without. I know she'd prefer to give them a full meal but that rule comes from way above her and was there when I went to school in the same district many years ago.

    The sad thing is, she says there are a lot of kids who would qualify for free lunches (full lunch, not the cheese sandwich) but the parents never turn in the paperwork for it. Don't know if they don't have time to fill it out, they're lazy, or have too much pride to ask for help. Whatever their reasoning is, it's their kids who go without and suffer in the long term.
