    Poor kids carried an unvaried lunch in the same lunch box every day, because paper bags cost money.  Kids with hot lunches were not allowed to give kids with cold lunches any part of their hot lunch.  Trading with other kids eating a hot lunch was fine.  Heaven forbid that someone who didn't pay should eat something a paid-for kid didn't want!  I remember this because I had to make sure the lunchroom monitors weren't looking when I gave another kid my pizza (school "pizza" was disgusting, I wouldn't eat it, but I had no problems giving it to someone who wanted it).
